    Interesting.

    Well, I think there's only one solution I can think of: Flight school. You know, the simple stuffs like drivers ed. All these news stuff is mainly due to "lack of knowledge of dos and don'ts". Heck, if only DJI included it in the manual that the height limit for these things is 400 feet (but I could've sworn the default height on the assistant software was like 2000m or 6500 feet).

    I never realized how "big" this problem could be, and it amazes me how much research is done for this.

    The default settings in my FC40 for range and height were both set at 2,000 yards, if I remember correctly

    Why would DJI include that? The height limit is not 400 feet.
