    I also posted this on Facebooks Phantom users group

    We ALL need to write to DJI and complain about the 24 hour, 7 days week No Fly Zones they have now implemented around all sports stadiums.

    I understand why they did it. And am in favor of safeguards around major public events. There are idiots out there. But I am not one of them. I shouldn't be punished All Day, Every day for the few idiots.
    The FCC law in the USA has a Temporary Flight Restriction around a major sports arena with 30,000 attendance or more from 1 HOUR before a game to 1 HOUR after it ends.

    Making it so we cannot fly some 3,000' radius around all stadiums ALL the time is overkill and not necessary at all.
    Lets use our collective power as customers to Complain - LOUDLY AND REPEATEDLY until the listen.

    Apps like Hover can get the info from the FCC about game days & events to show when a Temporary NFZ is in place, then DJI can as well.
    We just need to motivate them.

    There is no reason on earth that I shouldn't be able to shoot skylines of my city at DAWN on any day of the week, let alone game days.
    I know this affects many of you.
    Let your voices be heard.
    Lets not just ***** & moan. Do something.
