    You're in a better position to answer that than us.

    I live inside the edge of a no fly zone......It's a local airport. Not a big one but still it has commercial flights out of it. I had the same concerns but I've had no problem flying. I haven't tried to fly any closer than where I'm at and I have no plans to but it's going to be difficult for anyone to give you a 100% correct answer.

    Yes, the motors should run. The are mainly disabled at the big ATC airports. Keep an eye out for him and stay within 400 ft and all should be well. Might be good to call or go see the guy, let'em know about you and the q500.
