    I just finished watching a Bixler R/C gilder get to almost 10,000 feet on YouTube. It was pretty darn amazing and it got me to thinking. I know our Phantoms can't do that kind of altitude, but what is the highest altitude reached by a P2V+ that you have knowledge of? As always, many thanks.

    Regards,
    J.

    A guy in China flew his Vision (non-plus) to 2km altitude back to early this year. :eek:

    With the FAA breathing down our necks right now I'm not sure this is the time to be thinking about altitude records!!

    There are enough people out there giving the FAA all the evidence they need to regulate us out of existence.

    For altitude reached Flytrex has one at 13,696 Feet.

    Before you get mad about the FAA, he was only 345 feet off the ground and he was in Ecuador so the FAA is not an issue.

    I have heard of people flying much higher than that.



    For altitude gained Flytrex also shows someone in BC Canada starting at sea level and reaching 4,140 feet.

    I think with software 3.xx 4k feet would be tall order.
    With 1.08 you can come down fast. Just leave room to recover from prop wash.

    Here's my current best. I had forgotten I had my max height limit set, other wise this would've higher.

    I did here that if you go into ATT mode with the latest firmware, then you can descend without restrictions on speed...
