Hello folks I'm Tom from E.B. I bought a yuneec Typhoon Q500 to fly with my grandson. I originally boubut an FJI at Costco, And immediately found out I couldn't fly it because I live near an airport. I registered the drone took the safety test Applied for a flight plan and kept getting denied. So I checked online to find one without geo fencing. I was informed that yuneec typhoon Q500 didn't have no fly zone built-in. So I bought it. When I shut off the GPS the motors will start. Sometimes not. it has a ST12 controller. And the back of drone sticker says 2015. I only want to fly in my backyard no higher than fifty feet. I've read about sites that will sell you No fly zone or move or tools. My question is are these scams. I tried doing it all the proper wand that's where the stars and the didn't work. So now i'm forced to dodge the system. Can anyone give me some advice on this, As all this is new to me. Thanks in advance for any help. And I wish everyone a nice day
ps if I do a factory reset will this solve my problem. Also, I can't find anywhere to get Firmware Upgrade, I tried the Yuneec website

Greetings from Birmingham Alabama USA, welcome to the forum! We look forward to hearing from you!

Autel drones do not have GEO fencing,
 
Best would be to check with John at Yuneec skins
