    Hello All,

    I'm just within 5 miles of an airport (4.2 miles), but not under the single runway's line of approach or departure, so a recent upgrade capped my ceiling at 130 feet.

    I'm considering downgrading to 1.8 in order to address a NFZ issue in my area. I see there have been several posts in 2014 when the No fly Zone kicked in, but little action since then.

    Can someone point me to a resolved conversation about 1) the pros-cons of downgrade, 2) whether one can find a complete and stable version right now, and 3) any major issues to watch out for.

    Sorry for the n00b question, mods, as this may have been resolved elsewhere.

    No fly zones are similar to an upside down wedding cake and aircraft line up on runways at certain heights, so just becasue your not on a flight path, doesnt mean aircraft wont use that airspace - If DJI have put a NFZ in there - its done for a reason !
