Hello,
Someone told me that Autel Drones do not have Geofencing built into them like the DJI line of drones do. I live near an airport, and even when I travel well outside the restricted area, I still have issues with geofencing and being able to fly my DJI Drone. Specifically, I'm most curious about the Autel Nano Plus, but am also interested in the comparison between Autel and DJI when it comes to this 'feature' called Geofencing.

Thank you in advance.
Scott

i have both the DJI mini 2 and the Autel nano +. They’re both high quality quads, geo fencing with the DJI is a huge drawback! Nano offers great night photo/video (part 107 needed for night flying). DJI price point is better. Both great for light travel, hiking, easy access. I also have the Autel EVO II, dominates over both!

Autel does not have Geofencing enabled in the USA. There is geofencing in countries where it is 100% required.
Nano+ is an amazing drone you can pretty much fly anywhere in the USA, but be mindful of the FAA regs. This also includes many state and local regs now where their additions mostly determine zones you can take off or land from. That's local jurisdiction.

All Autel Robotics drones already have geofencing installed. Currently, in the U.S., instead of prohibiting flight, they nag you to death with on screen warning dialog boxes over your FPV that cannot be removed. At any time, Autel Robotics could decide to change their currently advisory NFZ’s into compulsory NFZ’s. The mapping is already installed. DJI’s GEO was also initially advisory only, until it wasn’t! The handwriting is on the wall. You just have to read between the lines!

Autel is on the record, officially stating they will not institute geofencing anywhere it is not compulsory by law. (Currently that's like 3 countries worldwide: China, Japan, and maybe Malaysia?)

If you think that can be relied upon, you would be wrong. It is not a guarantee. DJI also stated that GEO would always be optional. Reread Post #4. It's already installed on all Autel Robotics drones in an advisory mode. They just have to flip a switch to make it compulsory. They are ready! Has Autel Robotics ever officially changed their minds about anything? Hmmmmm.
