    Anyone know where I can a list or map of the Yuneec No Fly Zones for the UK?

    The reason I ask, I've previous been able to take off on a site with my Q500+ that a friends DJI P3P wouldn't allow him too.

    Do they share the same NFZs?

    I don't know about NFZ maps but apparently the radius from them have been reported as different. Yuneec as 3 or 4 miles and Dji as 5. If your site is at 3 or 4 miles distance in this might explain the difference.

    Thanks,

    The area I had been flying in is earmarked a no fly zone, on that map, curiously the area my friend can take off is also marked

    Much appreciated

    So that appears to be airports only, nothing else, doesn't seem to be too bad, was fearing more, strange then that the DJI wouldn't take off, Had 3 in the same area, and had my Q500 up and spotted another one flying in the same field.

    It's a big world out there. I am more worried bout GPS locks.

    Agreed, however I want to be able to use mine for photograph my construction projects, for record purposes

    The sensitive places have D notices in the UK. Unlikely that they would be GPS'd by Yuneec. I am sure that if you were foolish enough you could fly the H right next to Buckingham Palace. There would be nothing in the H system to prevent you from doing so i.e. a GPS lock. It would be most unwise to try however. Otherwise as an ex light plane flyer it is well to steer clear of small airfields which could just cause light aircraft a problem. Unlike North America we don't have the proliferation that they have of small airfields.
