DJI restrictions only include major airports such as pearson, even then it's only a 5 mile lockout , Pearsons control zone for those who don't know is 7 Nm. YTZ is 5 as is buttonville. Dji has not taken these into account, yet people are using them as evidence they are safe.
has DJI actually implemented this promised 'no fly zone' tech yet for North america? I had assumed that was still just futureware. Of course I think they need to have the entire globe's control zones mapped as off limits on DJI products, perhaps a lot of other areas off limits for non aviation reasons as well.
