    I was reading reviews about all the different drones out there and came across this article:

    Top Drones Reviews - We Rate The Best Quadcopters

    In the review about the P3 this person states that DJI has now released a firmware to prevent the P3 from flying above the 400 foot limit. Can anyone confirm if this is true or not?

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Phantom Pilots forum P3FUN. I hope that you will take advantage of the benefits that come with membership and that you will be able to use the forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Phantom quadcopter’s.

    That story made reference to it here...
    "In terms of features, there are a few other ones worth mentioning. One of them is that they soft-cap the ceiling (maximum altitude) at 400 feet."

    Not to worry. Last month DJI made an announcement that they were going to make it possible to bypass the limits... with a cravat.
    "DJI said on Tuesday that a new version of its drone control software to be released in December will allow pilots to fly in restricted areas after they have self-certified they have permission to do so."

    Anytime you see a phantom pilot sporting a cravat, you know they're flying high ;)
