DJI to update no-fly zones to prevent more White House incidents

January 29, 2015 12:35 | By | 1 Comment

In reaction to recent news that DJI multicopters were used to smuggle drugs and fly within Washington D.C., the company announced a firmware update that adds not only over 10.000 national airports, but also country borders and the FRZ around Washington D.C. to it’s no-fly zone list.

This will prevent owners of Phantom* and Naza flight controllers from repeating some of the the stunts seen recently.

At least, if they apply the firmware update, and even then only until they realize that open source flight controllers have no such restrictions.

    I don’t own a DJI, but I know on other quads that you can turn of GPS and fly wherever you want. Is this the case with the DJI?
