    nice,

    They must read the forums,, I have seen many folks suggest what they did..

    " DJI said on Tuesday that a new version of its drone control software to be released in December will allow pilots to fly in restricted areas after they have self-certified they have permission to do so."

    Wow!.. no kidding.

    What better way to prosecute you now that they have your information.

    I'll stick to the unrestricted fly zones thank you o_O

    My guess is that if you choose to supply a mobile phone number as your identification, it will require receipt and acknowledgement of a text message for verification.

    So using either Jenny's or HeeHaw's phone number most likely will not work. ;)

    I'm all for telling these idiot lawmakers about all of the new features in the Phantoms that prevent flying in certain areas.....




    (and that can be over-ridden with a push of a button) ;)

    Haha, I've used that address in the past!

    Does anyone know whether this had been added to the firmware yet? I live by a mislabeled no fly zone that I've been itching to explore!
