    LOL.

    I was flying over a construction zone around where I live. No warning other that a "grass runway" within 3 miles. I wasn't too worried about that message, as I wasn't planning on going over 200 ft. But then I flew over something that I didn't realize. The drone was no more than 400 feet away from me on the other side of the construction site, and a message popped up on my screen that I was in a restricted zone. The message was a little transparent, but what the heck. I had to click two options just to get the screen to disappear just so I could see what I was doing again. Kind of defeats the purpose of trying to fly safely.

    What I ended up flying over was the City hall building which has a couple jail cells. Opps.
