Is there a No Fly Zone on this drone?

Hi, I'm a Mavic pilot and my current drone won't allow me to fly at my work which is very far from the airport, I was wondering if there is also a restriction on Anafi's? I'm planning to buy an Anafi. Thanks

No, Parrot Anafi is fortunately not equipped with DJI's erroneous self-determined NFZ system. However, I would strongly recommend you adhere to your country's aviation rules when you fly. :)

Yeah, i can fly freely at home but cant at work 'coz it's close to DC
Oh, I live in Denmark and do not know much about the rules in the United States. But from my school age for over 50 years back I can recall that Washington should have the White house standing somewhere. If I do not guess wrong, the whole city will be a no-fly zone for the same reason. But again, you must seek information at your government's official websites and not on DJI where you have to fly.

PS. I remember something about a person employed in the National Security Service a few years ago landing his quad on the lawn of the White House ? Hi probably got a few years behind bars for his stupidity !!! ;)

Regards Leif.

I can confirm the anafi will fly happily in nw dc... but that is mostly just for testing settings at low altitude in my backyard.

Point being, the whole dc nfz bubble is ridiculous, but please don’t go and be stupid either...

That's ridiculous! As you can see on the map i posted, I'm like 15miles away from DC. I was just planning to fly around my work surroundings.

After DJI's debacle at NFZ, I seriously dont think any other player in the market is going to be stupid enough to venture into that area.

DJI made a complete hash of it. Wouldnt be so bad if their data had been accurate and reflected official and current NFZ's, not just some hacked together database they have put together.

Happy to say my MP definitely doesn't have a NFZ :)

Couple of things.

First When I first got my MP, I contacted their Safe Skies or whatever they called it. Then an odd thing happend, I got a pm from one of their guys which just said, do not update beyond .400 .... I didn't need all them fancy flight options, so stayed where I was, and was able to simply turn off NFZ using the DJI Assistant Application. (See WiKi)

Now of course we have NLD (NoLimitDronez), who developed a seperate application that will allow you to change all elements of your MP, including rooting, remove height restrictions, and completly remove the NFZ.

The guys who developed the application, are all part of the "original gangsters" who bust wide open the Mavic, in response to DJI playing dirty and not obeying the rules of GPL

Now we can more or less do whatever we want with the Mavic, within reason.

But just because NFZ was removed, was not a licence to go causing havoc, there was cases of a genuine reason why not to have NFZ, apart from the fact the DJI database was totally screwed up.

Loads of information on our WiKi
