    Too many changes, too many articles. In a week or so I will have my P4 but will the firmware keep me grounded in a **Possible***airport NFZ or can I opt out by the self certify? I know this topic has probably been exhausted but my search did not find the answer as it seems to go back and forth. to add to it.... Here is my dilemma. I want to do a video shoot of downtown Flint. ( Not over population, believe me... It's a complete ghost town) the first DJI map shows this area out of NFZ.

    Thoughts?

    The blue circle is the immediate area around the airport, you may not be able to fly there at all. The red circle looks to be the 5 miles FAA says you must contact airport authority to notify. The short answer, they're both nfz's.

    As far as opting out, I have no idea.

    Thanks much. Strange to have so many maps all different but with the last one being the most recent I feel much better about my intentions. I think part of my troubles in misunderstanding all of the NFZ was because I had not created an account with DJI. After doing so I was able to see much more. Thanks again...

    I live 4.8 miles away from the Kzoo airport and don't have any problem flying my P3. You should be fine?

    I believe the first map you were looking at is the old P2 series map.

    No FLY Zones | DJI

    It still applies to P2s but it will mislead you if you have a P3.

    The geo system beta maps aren't accurate either: More NFZ BS
