    Never thought of this but say I'm on a cliff face and hover at take off altitude at 1 metre, then send the quad out and down the cliff eg 100m what will my altitude read? I know the altitude is based on were I took off so no idea what It'll read or more to the point what would happen if I pressed RTH (set at 50 metres) but I was say 100 metres down?

    Your quad will activate a wormhole and end up in China

    If you go down 100 M your altitude will read (minus) -100 M if RTH kicks in and set at 50 meters it will go up 50 from where it took off so it will rise your minus 100 plus the 50 you have set for a total of 150 M +1

    Not you again! Wasn't funny in the slightest!

    You haven't even got a P4 anyway so go back to the P3 section & annoy them!

    (This is the bit were you put one of your stupid pictures!)

    I am assuming the constructive answers reply was just a joke
