    Hi,
    DJI's no fly map does not indicate any no fly zones in Africa.
    Is this just the map or does DJI Go also not have any restrictions set for the area?

    Also a newbie, but you have to select Africa and then SA. I had to check for ORT, because I am close by. Thought I could start, but I am well out of range.

    My map indicates zero no flight zones, I'm close to Durban airport and nothing!

    Could be because of the airport change and not recorded yet.

    Are you using the latest upgrade? I've tried to take in an industrial area close to Lanseria airport but it wouldn't allow me. I got a nfz message

    Hi Guys.

    Also bought my Phantom a while ago. I use this map:

    SouthAfricaNoRPASOutlined.kmz

    It has a tab for map or satellite. I then search my position and check if I am out of the No Fly zones. The RSA rule is 50 meters from house, people, roads and not within 10 km from a airport or airstrip.

    Don't rely on DJI's built-in 'no fly zones'. They're incomplete (especially outside the US and Europe). For example, a visitor to New Zealand recently got fined for flying his DJI quadcopter in downtown Auckland - where there are lots of helipads nearby - because the DJI software didn't report a 'no fly zone', and he thought that was OK.

    Look up information about local rules and 'no fly zones', and use this - not DJI's built-in 'no fly zones' - as your first point of reference.
