Hey all, I've been flying arund my house since GEO was first introduced and I'm fully aware I'm in a warning zone. But today that changed to a No Fly Zone with the latest update. I was still able to successfully unlock and fly but check ing the GEO ZONE MAP online shows that my house is not withing the Restricted zone. I've reported this as an error via the App but wondering if anyone else has had this issue?

Same thing is happening to me. All of the city is now a NFZ.

Here is the situation in Baltimore.  I have no problem with the flight envelope & glidepath restriction around airports.  Some of the small NFZ markers are for bizarre things like churches & even a local halfway house.  No bird I have prior to the M2P will ever see an update.  At least the massive blue circle over the entire downtown area is unlockable.

Are all drone manufacturers doing the same thing and restricting huge or overlapping NFZ's?  Or is DJI trying to play good citizen manufacturer?

Once word spreads, there will be a dwindling or no market for any of the drones.  Or is the US FAA actually restricting most air space like this?

Besides DJI updating their GEO system.  DJI switched data providers.  ''DJI has dropped AirMap and selected PrecisionHawk as its new North America data provider.''

Problem with greatly expanded NFZs could be a two-fold problem.
1) PrecisionHawk is overly cautious or AirMap was being lax.
2) DJI's GEO system was setup to read data from AirMap, and PrecisionHawk's data is of different format.

Indeed this is really diminishing the joy of flying & acts as a disincentive to purchasing a drone.  One thing that really annoys me:  Why the need to reauthorize every 24 or 48 hours?  Why not just authorize once & accept responsibility?  DJI is off the hook so leave us alone at that point.

Want to fly a Litchi mission in Baltimore?  First load DJI Go & make sure your authorization hasn't expired or obtain one if necessary.  That battery is now wasted for the Litchi mission so insert battery #2.  The mission you plotted on the Litchi map doesn't show the zones, NFZs, or those silly NFZs over a single building like a church or halfway house.  Now it's off to the GEO map to avoid flying over a church, etc.  Plain stupid...

I think Canada is just as bad now. I suspect pretty much all of urban USA and all of its national parks, and a lot of open spaces will become no fly zones in the distant future. Massive over regulation just because they can. Drone users need to start lobbying now before you lose all of your flying rights. Luckily in the UK the government havent jumped on this bandwagon and at least had the decency to ask drone users what they think before bringing in draconian legislation.

Whatever the issue, I don't see how a whole city can be a NFZ.  Something isn't right.

For those of you who are having problems with the Geo system, just go and use Litchi app, and problems are solved.

No it isn't.   Litchi checks the drone's internal status for NFZ restrictions.  If you can't fly with Go you can't fly with the current version of Litchi either.

That's strange because I was able to take off using litchi in a NFZ that DJI Go restricted.

I'm right down the road in Annapolis, and the latest update goes almost all the way out to the Chesapeake Bay, where before, I could go to Annapolis Middle School and fly without warning or restriction. And yet, if you look at DJI's map, they completely ignore a very active flight school airport - Bay Bridge (W29). DJI would be better off putting an envelope around that one. They correctly show KESN since it's Class D.

If this area of confusion and/or limitation is not straightened out soon. the advice will be not to buy a DJI drone if you live in the US as flight locations are becoming more and more limited - even in your own backyard.

If everyone complains to DJI with specific NFZ I am sure that, given the size of the US market DJI will improve things.  Part of it is going to be the FAA (or the people who provide the data to DJI) listing NFZ. Given that in the US people like to sue I would suggest that it is companies being cautious.

As for not buying DJI but a drone system without NFZ you run the risk that the US Authorities will ban any UAV with out NFZ and it will get confiscated on site.

The NFZ's round me in the UK, not far from 2 airports and an airfield (and a city) are all OK and appropriate.  So I would suggest it is just the FAA and US NFZ map makers rather than DJI per say.

Modern Drones like the Mavics, in wide spread use, are a recent phenomenon and it is always going to take legislation and the authorities time to catch up. There will be some fettling in of the rules and things like NFZ.  It might be difficult for a year or so but it should come right in the end.
