Sorry if already discussed elsewhere or is on the roadmap (pretty sure I’ve seen a roadmap of sorts in the past but damned if I can find it)
In West Midlands at the moment there is a temporary FRZ that came into force on 22nd July for Drones only. If you were to click on the current zone at the moment on DS, you would not be aware of this as the blue zone that is not active yet (this related to all aircraft including manned) is seemingly the top layer. A drone pilot may therefore assume it is currently safe to fly in this area.
Basically you tap in the FRZ, and you get the first AA image in the OP, showing the two restrictions one red, one blue. To get the bottom screen, you have to tap the red restriction thats showing in the black bottom half of the screen. Sorry if that comes across as obvious, not trying to sound like teaching to suck eggs on purpose.
Not that I can see. Both only appear when temorary flight restrictions are toggled on. Admittadly the blue layer is also the prominent visible layer from just looking.
I guess it would be nice if in DS if you clicked in a area it could somehow display all the warnings in that one clicked area if there are multiple, either via similar click-through to prevent it getting mega messy on the screen or worst case, listing them all in some sort of priority order of listing.
I live in Dudley and went to fly in an area that I use regularly and found that my mavic pro 2 was not allowed to take off , must have just been in the games restricted area. . Thought there was something wrong with drone so set up my mini 2 and that was fine. Anybody know why the mini 2 is allowed , it’s still a drone ? Does anyone know what happens when you take off in an unrestricted zone and fly in to a restricted zone , does it fall out of the sky ?
@Challenges_Committee I tried to enter a DS Pin on the summit of The Wrekin in Telford today as it was my TOAL point and as such would add to my challenge points. However, repeated attempts resulted in the app hanging at the submit screen with the scrolling bar. I filed all the relevant fields as I have done in the past but it just hangs! Can you advise me on a solution please?
