Hi @Gabriel_Carpenter,

We have noticed some issues with NFZs due to the bug we have encountered since SDK 4.0 was released. We are working to resolve the issue but do not have a solution at this time. I’m sorry I don’t have a clear solution at this time.

Is there any way to revert back to the previous version of the app? We are inside an arbitrary DJI geozone that does not conform to FAA regulations. I have spoken to all the airports and this is a huge problem for automated flight for us as we use drone deploy for orthomosaic and 3D automated flights.

Hi @CWW1,

Sadly there isn’t a way to revert to a different version of the app, and I don’t think it would actually solve the issue. We do not have a way to lift the regulations which are set by the DJI SDK. Sorry about that.
