    Why do you want to do that? Are you flying in a hilly area?

    This seems to work so far. Thanks. I was overlooking it for some reason. But I'm still fearing to agree on the T's & C's for the violation.

    Why are you fearing it? Just don't fly above 400 feet AGL and you'll be good.

    Shhhhh

    One may open up the limits slightly in hilly areas as all commercial flights would definitely keep enough clearance over 400' of the peaks in the vicinity.

    Is this 400 meters you mean?

    AGL means Above Ground Level -- meaning your Phantom should not be more than 400 feet above the ground where it's flying.

    Love your video.

    Did you hike or drive your car up?

    Exactly. That's what I'm trying to figure out if one is able to go above 400f AGL?

    Technically? Yes. You can fly up to 500 meters above the home point.

    I wish I could take credit, but it was a waypoint flight in Litchi and totally autonomous.

    I switched the app to imperial, but I noticed that the menu for setting the maximum altitude and safe return to home altitude still says "M". Does the drone interpret the number I put in the block as feet or meters? I would think that it is meters, but I am not sure since I told it imperial instead of metric.

    Those settings should always be set in meters.
