Display No-Fly Zones With APM 2.5+
Long story short, I have decided to go with the APM 2.5+ and MinimOSD on my Skywalker for a UAV competition in June, and one of the things that I want to do is have it display no fly zones on my groundstation laptop. I know this is open source, and I am fairly fluent in Java programming, so I was wondering if the APM 2.5+ can either already display no-fly zones, or if anyone can give me any direction in programming these no-fly zones.
These would just be needed to fulfill the competition requirements, meaning they don't have to be functional, the plane does not have to turn around if it hits a no fly zone. However, seeing as this is a UAV competition, where I would be primarily flying from my telemetry on my laptop, and only taking off and landing through FPV, I believe functional no-fly zones would be pretty cool.
Thanks guys! I've been out of this for a little while so forgive me if I sound like noob.

Look into Geo Fencing. It sounds about what you want to do...
I started to test it but ripped the landing gear off in a test flight of the plane I was going to try it in. I'd suggest you disconnect the motor. Then breach the fence by walking the plane out of bounds.
