    Is there a Map or App that shows what Yuneec considers the airport no fly zone? I'm using Hover, but is marking areas that does not have airports.

    The best updated one is straight from FAA if you are in the states, download to your tablet or ST16, see link below:
    B4UFLY Smartphone App

    I know this isn't actually what you're asking, but the relevant FAA app is called "B4UFLY"
    It is VERY restrictive since it includes all helipads. The FAA considers helipads airports as far as UAS are concerned.

    I plan to take mine to the airport my EAA chapter is at. Even the airport manager is interested in how it reacts. I want to know if it will even let me take off while at the airport and how it reacts when I fly into the airport air space.

    If it's like my P3 it will not even lift off if it is a class one airport, and may even fly radically and crash, as mine did once, beware!

    I just want to know if it i a 1 mile no take off or fly in or what. I have a small airport 7 miles form my home and on the UAV forecast app it has the 2 circles. the outer is notify and inner is no fly. this app uses the DJI no fly zones.

    They say 4 miles, but didn't specify airport type. So i don't know if heliports and such will count.

    According to the FAA UAS seminar I took last week, you have to notify the tower of a controlled airport (Class B, C, or D) within 5 miles and the airport manager of an uncontrolled airport (Class E, G) within 3 miles. I don't know how Yuneec has implemented this into their geo fence. Both r/c flying fields I fly at are within 5 miles of a towered airport, but they are both sanctioned AMA fields and the YT-H flew at both.

    ps. Yes, I know there are some towers within Class E and G airspace, but they are rare.

    Yuneec stated the NFZ is around commercial airports only.

    The B4UFLY is anything but complete or correct. It includes every Pixley International Airport ma and pa grass strips that haven't been in operation since Petticoat Junction stopped airing.

    If B4UFLY were enforced, I couldn't fly; surrounded by 5 uncontrolled "airports"; no tele #, no tower, most grown over with trees.

    Who was the hottest babe? Sorry, I'm not PC.

    The worst piece of crap ever written is B4UFLY which makes sense because it was written for the FAA and paid for with tax money. The only one I have found that seems useable is UAV Forecast. The settings allow you to control more of what is displayed.

    'Salute the fag' has a completely different connotation down here!
    Unless you mean the flag....
