    How good is your hearing? :D

    I can still slightly hear mine even up at 400 feet.

    I've heard mine at 400' but its quiet. I did, however, see a guy take his up to 950'. First Phantom 3 I ever saw. You couldn't hear it at that height.

    Dead silence, really far... around 800' or so. Typical noise and I can barely hear it around 250-300'.

    I'm guessing you ask about height as you want to fly over people and not have them hear the buzzing sound? I do this as well, rise up enough to where it is hard to here. In that case I rise up to 250-300'.

    ^^Absolutely, on a calm day.
    Maybe can't hear it well enough to spot it, but you can hear it.

    I also can hear mine 120M (400 ft) up and 300M out. It's faint, but detectable.

    Typical suburbia neighborhood here, with cars, kids and mowers, and no way you can hear mine at 250 directly overhead. If it were to get really empty and quiet for a sec, it'd sound like a distant weed eater being operated somewhere.

    I can hear mine at 400', but Ive had people walk by when I'm around 100' and they don't notice anything. If you're zoned in, you hear it...if you're not, you don't. Except, don't go thinking you're going to sneak up on somebody, cause it just won't work.

    Yeah, I can hear it pretty well @ 300ft. and 1200ft away. I might wig out a little if it goes so far I can't! lol

    i could just hear mine at 900m distance today, though I knew its direction it was coming from, my hearing could not orientate.

    You guys have way better hearing than I do. I can hardly hear it 200 ft away.

    Oddly enough in the country, I have heard mine 300-400 yards away and 180 ft up on occasion but seems few people notice if 150+ft up and away from them.
    They never look up for it anyway.

    Other times it seems very hard to hear. Must be atmospheric conditions.

    Depends on the wind, angle and height. But in general, 300 yards away and silience.
    about b the same distiance for LOS.

    I can hear my Phantom 4 at 300', but only if I-90, 1/2 mile away, is quiet.
