    I wanted to show off my new PV2+ to my nephews living in single house this morning. There are no airport, huge playground nearby, no known power plant but only overhead power cable. I detected 8 GPS signal above me but the app showed me this is restricted area, it could only fly between 10m and 120m, same situation two blocks away. I don't know why, do I have the option to find out what made it restricted area ? Anyway, I set waypoints to default (98ft) height which I believe it's OK to fly. But it blocked me to fly after pressing Done on waypoint set up.
    Just wondering if I can switch to manual control, technically, can I force it to take off in this restricted area ? Of course, I didn't do that but go home.

    If there is no airports, it's most likely government owned airspace and you are forbidden to fly in it.
    I would just avoid the area...
