Hello everyone. I'm currently in central London with my DJI Mavic Pro, and I just recently flew right in front of London Eye. (Large ferris wheel in a very touristy part of London) When I got home, I decided to update my "safe flight" database. This turned most of central London into a large, red, no-fly zone. "GEO Zone Info. The target area is in a GEO Zone. Takeoff is not allowed."
I was disheartened by this. I was seemingly able to get the drone to take off (the rotors would spin up while the drone was still on the ground) without my iPhone attached, (controller only) but as soon as I plugged in the iPhone, the rotors would stop.
After downgrading to 01.04.0300, I was able to install the NFZ patch using NLD. However, I did not downgrade my iOS app. According to everything I have read, downgrading my iOS app is necessary for flight within NFZs. However, I was just able to take off and fly my drone, well within the red "GEO Info Zone."
This seems odd to me. Has anyone else noticed similar behaviour?
