Matrice 600- Flight Limits and No Fly Zones
Flight limits on height and distance can be set.
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operators should abide by the regulations from self-regulatory organizations such as the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), the FAA and their local aviation authorities. For safety reasons, flight limits are enabled by default to help users use this product safely and legally.
When operating in P-mode, the height limit, distance limit and No Fly Zones work together to monitor flight. In A-mode, only the height limit prevents the aircraft from going above 50 meters*.
* The value is set to 120 if the aircraft has ever received a strong GPS signal (i.e. at least three bars are displayed after the GPS icon) when powered on.
Maximum Height and Radius Limits
Users can change the maximum height and radius limits in the DJI GO app. Once complete, your Matrice 600 will fly in a restricted cylinder that is determined by these settings. The tables below show the details of these limits.
No Fly Zones
All No Fly Zones are listed on the DJI official website at http://flysafe.dji.com/no-fly. No Fly Zones are divided into Airports and Restricted Areas. Airports include major airports and flying fields where manned aircraft operates at low altitudes.
Restricted Areas include borders between countries or sensitive sites. The details of the No Fly Zones are explained below:
Airports (requires GPS):
1. Airport No Fly Zones are comprised of a no fly zone and an altitude-restricted zone. Each type of zone encompasses a radius of a certain size.
2. R1 miles around the airport (depending on its shape and size) encompasses the no fly zone, inside of which takeoff and flight are prohibited.
3. From R1 to R1+1 miles around the airport, the flight altitude is limited at a 15 degree incline, starting at 66 feet (20 meters) from the edge of airport and radiating outwards. The flight altitude is limited to 1640 feet (500 meters) at R1+1 miles.
4. When the aircraft is within 320 feet (100 meters) of a no fly zone, a warning message will appear in the DJI GO app.
Restricted Areas (requires GPS):
1. Restricted Areas do not have an altitude-restricted zone.
2. R miles around the Restricted Area (depending on the regulation) is a no fly zone, inside of which takeoff and flight are prohibited.
3. A Warning Zone is set on the perimeter of the Restricted Area. When the aircraft is within 0.062 miles (100 m) of the no fly zone (inside the Warning Zone), a warning message will appear in the DJI GO app.
Semi-Automatic Descent: All stick commands are available except the throttle stick command during the descent and landing process. Motors will stop automatically after landing.
- When flying in No Fly Zones, the Aircraft Status Indicator will flash red rapidly and continue for 5 seconds, then switch to indicate the current flying status and continue for 7 seconds, at which point it will switch back to flashing red rapidly.
- For safety reasons, please do NOT fly close to airports, highways, railway stations, railway lines, city centers or other busy areas. Try to ensure the aircraft is visible at all times.
