DJI No Fly Zone EXPLAINED – Mavic Pro / Platinum / Air / Phantom / Spark

See how the DJI no-fly zones restrict and prevent flight, how to authorize yourself to fly in a restricted no-fly zone, and why you must not rely on the no-fly zones for areas you should not actually fly in.

Buy the New MAVIC 2:

IMPORTANT: Please do not attempt to fly in no-fly zones without proper authorization and understanding of flying in these zones. This video is only to help people understand how this feature works, but is in no way condoning flying in no-fly zones.

Thanks for watching!

    At least if you had authorization from FAA thru Air Map Kittyhawk etc this would unlock drone to fly

  2. Elliot Huh? on April 9, 2021 at 1:11 am

    If it’s your drone it’s your drone but to dji it’s their drone. Only place that makes sense is airport flight restrictions. There is geo fencing on buildings etc.

  3. DarkZenonia on April 9, 2021 at 1:11 am

    Restricted zone is still better if you dont want to Risk some buddy. FLYSAFE Guys!

    Great video quick question. I just downloaded the air map app. It looks like you can select to fly recreationally or under part 107. So I went into a yellow zone just out of curiosity and when I selected hobbyist or whatever it said it said I couldn’t fly when I selected part 107 it gave me that no authorization was needed at or below 200 feet in that area. Then I clicked on another area and I went up to 300 feet obviously varying depending where you were in the yellow zone. So if you are part 107 does that allow you to fly in more places in yellow zones because it looks like if you tap on the App in a yellow zone under 107 it will let you fly at a certain altitude without any permission but then over 200 feet let’s say you have to get permission. Please go into a yellow area and select different pilot certifications and please help me out with this I would really appreciate it.
    Please help me with this because it’s very confusing.

    I’m down in ventura for the strawberry season and I wanted to fly my drone here but on the DJI app was showing the yellow caution radar , thank you man for the info

  6. Tarick Khadra on April 9, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Love to learn more about your experiences. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Adam Caldwell on April 9, 2021 at 1:17 am

    I will fly where ever I want. because MuriKaa lol

  8. mid191 on April 9, 2021 at 1:17 am

    I love how you paid for the product and the company controls when and where you could fly it. Such as when a certain dictator decides to show up and everything suddenly becomes a no fly zone.

  9. RAFCRAVES on April 9, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Thanks for the tips

  10. jsarahina on April 9, 2021 at 1:21 am

    I really thought that if my drone fly and entered the red zone, it will be uncontrollable and just hover there forever…

  11. John Housey on April 9, 2021 at 1:22 am

    I’m 1 mile from the Ft Lauderdale airport and this confused me bc I had just opened it and wanted to try it out but the video helps and clears it up. Thx!! The authorization worked with a text for me.. pretty quick.

  12. popitn2nd on April 9, 2021 at 1:27 am

    My area is covered by green zone by DJI app so you do not need an authorization and it’s ok to fly anytime right?

  13. The Local Camarillo on April 9, 2021 at 1:28 am

    Hello fellow Camarillian! This video could not be more specific to my needs, thank you for uploading 🙂

  14. Paris Holmes Films on April 9, 2021 at 1:29 am

    It’s just crazy how it can prevent you from entering the red zone like there’s some type of vortex lmao

  15. KaDus Channel on April 9, 2021 at 1:30 am

    thanks for this video…. i can do it for my dji drone…

  16. Dji Serra on April 9, 2021 at 1:30 am

    Good video tanks

  17. slickrick411 on April 9, 2021 at 1:32 am

    My unlock worked with phone number.

  18. Remedy Talon on April 9, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Kinda lame because I live on military housing, which is over 5 miles away from the actual airfield and the housing is not on base property, yet the airspace around the military housing is restricted. All the airspace from the housing to the base is yellow zone. So essentially I won’t be able to fly in my backyard once I get my Mavic Air.

  19. Casteel Cooper on April 9, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Will you get in trouble flying a drone in a yellow zone?

  20. Fly Oz on April 9, 2021 at 1:33 am

    So essentially ve just bought a drone that wont work I lve in a no fly zone in Australia and most of the damn country has no fly zones all over. Even our model RC field is in a No fly zone yet we have exemption for our aviation authority so Why does DJI dictate otherwise??
    DJI should be sued for Not explaining at purchase the drone cant actually be used except very very limited areas.

  21. D Hansel on April 9, 2021 at 1:34 am

    One thing about the part 107, they ask about weather. Since you are going to be flying in the line of sight why in the world do you need to know about weather.
    1. If it is raining (Don’t Fly)
    2. If there is too high wind (Don’t Fly)
    3. If there is sunny skies very little wind (Fly)
    3. If there is an approaching tornado (Don’t Fly)
    4. If there is an approaching hurricane (Don’t Fly)
    5. If you see an atomic bomb mushroom cloud (fly quickly)
    You get what I mean. Use common sense.
    I believe the guys who put the test together just wanted to add filler to it.
    Now enjoy the hobby and don’t do anything stupid.

  22. Media Tree on April 9, 2021 at 1:34 am

    Hello friends

    I’ve been to such a flight zone and accepted at my own risk .. please look what happened to my poor mavic pro 2

  23. muzikmon2267 on April 9, 2021 at 1:34 am

    It said something about return to home not working correctly when you unlock a-zone.

    It would be cool if you could demonstrate what happens if you lose connection shut your controller off and see if the Drone comes right back..

  24. starhawke380 on April 9, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Been flying my flamewheel with a Pixhawk controller and using QGroundControl for 2 years now and never run into this problem once! Must just be a DJI problem.

  25. theblade66 on April 9, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Thankyou sir great video

  26. Raul Carballo on April 9, 2021 at 1:35 am

    this video is to old rules have change lately

  27. Delta Drones-Santa Catarina Vista de Cima on April 9, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Excelent Video! Thanks a lot!

  28. phil devore on April 9, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Since you published this video have these regulations changed in any way? January 14, 2019 is the current date

  29. Sam Barrientos on April 9, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Just bought a mavic air. I live next to a hospital with a helicopter pad…I’ve been flying in the yellow zone and didn’t have to give any info…it just tells be basically to be careful.. anyone know why that is?

  30. Will Alex Bom Braga on April 9, 2021 at 1:39 am

    Good night, man, I have a Mavic Air, I live near a military base so they asked me for email, cell phone and would send a code. If I fly within my country, it automatically releases the flight. Thank you very much.

  31. Dragon7 Drone Tech on April 9, 2021 at 1:40 am

    Buy the New MAVIC 2:

  32. joesky malka on April 9, 2021 at 1:40 am

    hi.At the beginning of the video, you succeeded in passing the red line. Why did the drone manage to pass, the red line opposite to the second time when you got to the red line and backed off

  33. D Hansel on April 9, 2021 at 1:41 am

    What’s the deal about giving them your credit card? How is that going to get you into the yellow zone?

  34. G M.S on April 9, 2021 at 1:42 am

    So u have to pay whit the credit card or what

  35. RAPA Ent. on April 9, 2021 at 1:42 am

    Great video as always! I have learned so much from your videos and just came across this one. I’m a Newbie and just received my Mavic Air. Currently, I only have AirMap on my MacBook Pro which shows all the airports, etc.. Please correct me if I’m wrong; I thought all I had to do was notify any airport/s in a "yellow only" radius (AirMap) when I’m within five miles from it and give them my location and how long I’ll be flying. Now, I have to follow up by going through DJI’s GEO Unlock process as well using a credit card? Why a credit card? I understand the DJI wants verification but, couldn’t this be done by serial or registration number’s? Thanks again for the great video. Ray

  36. Kid Henderson on April 9, 2021 at 1:43 am

    -DJIFLY does not have the same restrictions/authorization requirements as the other apps. This app states fly with caution and I can launch if I wanted too.
    -The other two state I need LAANC. However the apps state "LAANC authorization is not possible" when I tried to authorize it denies authorization due to multiple reasons such as (SSI) SPECIAL SECURITY Instructions which is from the ground up 400 FEET AGL and AUTOMATIC LAANC APPROVALS not valid in CLASS E space.
    – I contacted AIRMAP since they did not have the MINI 2 listed in the authorization process. AIRMAP as of this writing now has been added due to my inquiry. I thought the denials were due to the drone not being listed.

    FAA results:
    – The FAA emails stated " You must be a Part 107 certificated remote pilot in order to be eligible to apply for a Part 107 waiver to fly in this area. This was not guaranteed even if I do get my PART 107

  37. Mark Ebrey on April 9, 2021 at 1:44 am

    What do they take from your credit card

  38. Dade County Riders on April 9, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Exelent video thanks

  39. Jason Blankenship on April 9, 2021 at 1:50 am

    What is the credit card info actually used for to pay for damage if you crash in a yellow zone?

  40. Larry Lehman on April 9, 2021 at 1:51 am

    I am in a blue zone I got authorization thru DJI site still won’t let me take off I have a small community airport thanks

  41. Alexandra Texeira on April 9, 2021 at 1:53 am

    E ae tudo bem

  42. Huk Chone on April 9, 2021 at 1:56 am

    Thank you . I will check whether my Mavic Air show those warning. I’m just flying without any message. I just bought in Japan.

  43. len allan on April 9, 2021 at 1:57 am

    if i was flying my mavic in sport mode at full speed and hit a red NFZ what would happen? would i loose control?

  44. Keith's Place on April 9, 2021 at 1:57 am

    I returned my Dji mini 2 because of no fly zone near my house.

  45. Shel Bukowski on April 9, 2021 at 1:57 am

    "Probably not a good idea for me to show you how to do this, but I did it anyway, so please don’t do this…." But get out your credit card!

  46. Thomas Dutour on April 9, 2021 at 1:59 am

    Unlocking of blue no-fly-zone does not work with my Mavic. I have tried in the app and online on the DJI website.

  47. Maltese Falcon on April 9, 2021 at 2:01 am

    Does it effect the intelligent flight modes and sport mode if your in a yellow restricted zone? Just got my mavic air, it wouldn’t take off in a red zone but took off in a yellow but very slow and sport mode didn’t make a difference?

  48. Freshbite575 on April 9, 2021 at 2:03 am

    I can’t even fly at my house.😓need help

  49. FirstClass Media757 on April 9, 2021 at 2:04 am

    So there no app or any other ways to fly in the Red zone?

  50. Krishnendu Kes on April 9, 2021 at 2:07 am

    I am 3 years late but great video nonetheless!
