    Can someone answer me this question.

    Take off point is 700ft above sea level and a mountain at 1000ft was in between take off point and end destination at 1300ft.

    So say I wanted the drone to be 100ft above the end destination would I....

    Add 100ft to the end destination taking into consideration the drones hight so making it 1400ft.

    So I'm taking off at a hight of 700ft and need to be 1400ft so would I then add another 700ft to the hight at the take off point so the drone is at 1400ft at take off so it misses the mountain in the middle at 1000ft and at its end point it's at 1400ft.

    Am I right or barking up the wrong tree?

    Yeah... Sounds right to me... Like you've noted... The quad doesn't adjust for mountains by itself so your correct that you have to program it in based relative to your starting height.
