Zone Control

Ryan -

Zone Control is Map Pilot's in-app preview of DJI’s Fly Safe database. No-Fly-Zones (NFZs) displayed in Map Pilot share the same color coordination as DJI:

Yellow - Zone Unlock Available

Red - Restricted

Green - Warning Area

There are two types of data displayed in Map Pilot, offline and online NFZs. Offline NFZs are the baseline zones irrespective of aircraft type or user. In contrast, online data displays NFZs related to you specific aircraft and any previous unlocked zones that can be found in your DJI Account. To view the “online” data you must be connected to your aircraft and logged into your DJI account.


Map Pilot provides the ability to unlock available zones. Select “Zone Control” from the options panel at the top right, select a zone to unlock using the rolodex of zone names. Those that are able to be unlocked will have the label “unlock” under the lock button.   


Mission layouts can be placed anywhere, regardless of NFZ’s, however takeoff and flight may not be allowable based on the severity of the zone restriction. Fly zones are displayed within a 20 mile radius of either your mobile or drone location. To unlock a fly zone that is farther away, DJI’s Fly Safe website is the best option for unlocking zones for your next mission.

To view the most up to date No Fly Zones, we recommend using DJI’s Fly Safe website:
