I had a job this morning that was near Disney here in Orlando (job location is approximately 5 miles away). I have an FAA airspace authorization to perform the job. After driving 40 miles to the location, the DJI software determined I was in restricted airspace and would not allow me to take off [insert multiple expletives here]. I followed the necessary steps to unlock the zone through their website. At the end of that process, it still deemed me in restricted airspace and wouldn't let me fly. For reference, here's the webpage that details the TFR. http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_4_3634.html Unless I'm reading it incorrectly, the job I was performing fits within the categories allowed. So I have 4 questions: 1. How am I supposed to unlock this zone for further operations? 2. Is there a way to disable the geo-fencing feature to allow the drone to fly when I have legal authorization to do so? 3. Is this just a DJI limitation or do other UAS end-users experience the same problem? 4. Is there a way to determine ahead of time (i.e. before driving 40 miles), that DJI is going to require a ZONE UNLOCK?
