The great drone hack has finally arrived thanks to Drone Hacks, which allows drone pilots to remove No fly zones from DJI drones.
Wondering how to remove No Fly Zones on your DJI drone, thanks to the great drone hack, it is easier than ever. Drone pilots have long awaited a solution to DJI’s geo zone functionality, which limits pilots ability to take off in particular areas. Drone Hacks has offered multiple solutions to remove these restrictions, but now has an easy to use solution. While some pilots may be asking why Drone U choose to write this article, it is simple. Drone pilots are supposed to be ultimate responsibility. Drone pilots should know where they can and cannot fly. When those pilots have permission to fly in controlled airspace, DJI shouldn’t be the gate keeper for American Airspace.
The FAA has stepped up their recent efforts to educate pilots on how to safely access airspace. The FAA has even required recreational pilots to complete a recreational quiz, the Trust Program, before they take to the skies. We believe pilots should know where they can and cannot fly legally.
This new software change allows responsible drone pilots to take flight in controlled airspace, when they have a LAANC approval. Or simply put an approval to fly in controlled airspace. Even when pilots have an airspace approval, often times their drones can remain grounded. DJI’s geo zone has inhibited pilots from taking off in certain areas, even if it was a legal flight. Often times this system has flaws. The system will auto-populate TFR’s in areas where there are no TFR’s. We have run into these issues ourselves. The system has also made commercial operations more complex and problematic. Drone U even showed drone pilots how to hack their Mavic 2 Pro to acquire Attitude mode for safer flight and smoother video motions.
Now, responsible pilots can simply plug in their drone and remove all No fly zone’s from their drone. We recommend this solution for commercial pilots, but recreational pilots should exercise caution using when hacking their drone. The new hack adds a certificate to the drone to essentially remove any take off limitations. Supposedly the hack will still show pilots when they are in restricted and controlled airspace.
There are some caveats to this particular hack though. The hack adds the certificate to the drone, but if pilots are looking to fly inside, they’ll have to turn the certificate off in order to take flight. The hack is supposed to work for a wide variety of DJI drones. When the hack was first launched, some users reported errors on facebook. Most of those errors seem to have been fixed at this time.
The biggest question we have seen in comments, is if the hack will remove the warranty of any given drone. The warranty of the aircraft shouldn’t be voided by simply adding a certificate to fly in airspace. Multiple users have reported hacking their drone and still being able to use DJI’s care refresh program. Yet this issue be an important point to choose to use insurance rather than DJI’s care refresh program, when replacing a drone.
Note: Drone Pilots must have authorization to fly in controlled airspace to legally conduct operations. This hack does not waive any liability. The pilot is still ultimately responsible and should know where they can and cannot fly. WE ask pilots to use this hack responsibly to ensure the safety of the airspace.
