Today, we talk about unlocking your DJI drone. Legitimate pilots with licensing are being stopped by DJI’s geofencing system.
Our caller, Joe has the necessary authorization to fly in Class C airspace. However, the DJI App did not let him fly his Phantom 4 Pro. Is it possible to unlock DJI’s geofencing system?
How does DJI’s Geofencing System Work?
DJI’s geofencing system can be categorized into three zones: green, yellow and red. While it easier to unlock a green zone or yellow zone, dealing with the red zone can be tricky. Are there applications via which you can unlock a zone? What are some of the issues that you might face while unlocking a zone? In this episode, Rob and Paul discuss everything that you need to know which will help you unlock your drone. We thank Joe from Texas for the question. Fly Safe!
