    Does somebody know if the zero point of the Height limit settable in the Naza is the transmitter position or the ground level?
    For the side limits, I am sure is the position of the transmitter , but I am not sure about the height.
    It makes a lot of difference if you start from the top of a peak.
    If it is the transmitter quote, everithing is OK.
    But if it is the ground level , you set e.g. 300mt and you fly from a top of a peak of a mountain, if your ground below the peak is more than 300mt far away your bird risks to go down down and you can never take it back.

    It is Above Ground Level (AGL) - so basically zero is where you are.

    That was exactly what I was warried about:if I am on the top of a mountain at an horizontal distance of 10/20 mt from my position, the ground level can be 500/600 mt below me. If I have set the safety limit for my phantom e.g. at 350mt(maximum height for a safe radio connection in a flat area), I risk the quadcopter goes down 150/250 mt below my position and I am not able to get it back.
    This is the reason because, up to now, I left the height default limit to 2000 mt and forgot about setting a safe limit on height.
