    My P3P is currently 38,000 feet up. No problems at all. Then again, it's in my carry on luggage on my flight to Portland :)

    ...so if you fly it around inside the cabin of the aircraft, does it mean your P3 is traveling at over 500mph?? Food for thought!

    Don't think I haven't thought about that. Just to get a screen shot of my controller screen. Heh

    Has this been tested? Logic says you are correct. I could just leave the props off and see what it does.

    That's pretty funny! I would love to know how the P3 would react if powered on during a flight like that.

    The GPS module may just burn itself up trying to figure out what's happening. ;)

    I can see the headlines now.

    "Unruly drone flier attempts flight inside plane. All UAV's now required to be mailed and not carried on-board. FAA seeks to persecute all drone owners for one persons mistake. Forum members commit mass suicide."

    Couldn't you just put it in ATTI mode and fly it manually? Record in the making!

    You traveled with mines?

    Exactly how did you managed to check through with explosives?

    This could be tested in a car. Or pickup truck box. And be less newsworthy. Haha
