Hoping someone can help with this.  I bought a slightly used P4P from the original owner a few weeks ago, and it has flown fine ever since then until this afternoon.  I went through the usual procedures in getting ready to fly with Go4 when I suddenly noticed the message in the upper left of the screen that said "cannot take off".  Looking around a little further, I noticed the message "aircraft locked" and all of the indicator lights are red.  Can someone tell me why this is happening and what I need to do to unlock the aircraft?

Man I wish I knew a hacker that could sterilize all my DJI drones and make them fly free of all the BS that is incorporated into them. I hold my breath every time I power up wondering what's coming next

Fixed it!  Had to update the Precise Fly Safe Database, and once I did that, the P4P was unlocked.

I'm just about to buy a P4P and seeing this and what other problems that other people are getting with P4P I'm wondering if I should buy one. Where in the setting did you fix the unlock to fly?

I will hopefully be flying mine on the farm where I work but it's in the red section of the NATS app, I'm wondering what will happen if I do fly the drone.

This YouTube video shows how it is done:

Please reboot your drone in a place with good GPS signal. You can open mobile data to update the current location. I would recommend you provide a screenshot if the problem exists.
