    it would really help if Yuneec would publish a link to the NFZ map/database they use. It is something that DJI does (No FLY Zones | DJI) and it is very helpful.
    I am planning on getting the new Typhoon H, but if I cannot confirm where I will be able to fly I may have no choice but to get a different unit.
    It seems like a simple enough thing to do since they already have it.
    It also seems strange that the two companies would have different ones.

    Yes. I contacted customer service about a month ago and they directed me to mapbox.com. that site did show a NFZ map that was similar to the one on DJIs site. However, i have since gone back to that site and it now auto-redirects to the FAA site. That site talks about B4ufly app which is useless because it shows every airport, heliport, etc leaving no place to fly.

    I can tell you with certainly that is not their database that is installed in the firmware. Looks like they linked the Before you fly map.

    The indicator to center your location on their map doesn't seem to work. Not sure why.
    Anyone else have that issue?

    So is there a NFZ map? If the one linked above is accurate, it would be considerably more restrictive than the DJI zones.
