    It not in the latest update. They said initially it would be released in December. With only a few days left I don't think it going to happen.

    They did something. I get these annoying messages "you are about to enter a restricted airspace" (more or less true, mostly less). You have entered a restricted airspace. Drive carefully".

    It reminds me of the sequence in "Fifth Element" where the taxi computer is bothering Bruce Willis.

    So it knows what restricted airspaces are - to the extent that anyone does. The only really annoying thing is that the warning does not clear automatically like home point sets, etc. It sits there fat, dumb and happy until dismiss is. Which is stupid since I'm supposed to be safely flying the thing, not pressing virtual buttons.

    Oh, and the status lights have a nice, festive red and green sequence.
