is there a way to find the actual feet in the air my phantom is going?
If you have iOSD or another flight-telemetry-overlay system installed, then it will display (via FPV monitor) the Phantom's height in meters.
got it, no FPV installed...yet. dont have $300 sitting around.
There are 'payload' type altimeters available for post-flight data review such as this:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... meter.html
Many other types too to be found by a google search.
Flytrex, http://www.flytrex.com, but you only see how high you went after the fact.
i think ill just spen $200 more and get this info along with FPV afterall! thanks for the info peeps.
you can use the Phantom Assistant software to set a maximum ceiling for your Phantom on the Advanced / Limits tab, then you'd at least know it was never over whatever height you set. There is an option at the top of that same tab for meters or feet
I did a bunch of playing when my Phantom was new, set a 50m limit and tested, then 100m, 200. doing the same thing (in feet if you like) will help give you a visual of what certain heights look like... set a certain limit them run the phantom up to it nearby.... land, change the limit, repeat as often as you like
oh great info!
what does it do when the max height is reached?
It makes you read the manual!
With all due respect...
You should read the manual, there is lots of good info in it.
This forum and others similar are a great resource for help but not meant to be a substitute for taking the responsibility to read the manual.
it stops going up. try it out set a 40 or 50 foot limit and see for yourself
read the manual again, helpful.
wish i could set it in 'feet' instead of 'meter'. ill just convert!
"...wish i could set it in 'feet' instead..."
i read the manual, didnt say anything about changing. i also tried messing with it while 'writing' the numbers...
On page 25 you'll see a 'screen shot' of the 'limits' tab (Height & Radius).
There are three 'radio' buttons (options) above the cylinder graphic.
Guess what they read?
Meters, Feet, Miles.
EDIT: It's page 25 of the P2 Manual. Not sure of page # in other manuals.
i have downloaded
all the manuals on the 'downloads' page that are in english. only one has a page 25, the naza quick start manual, and nothing about flight limits on that page.
im over it...thanks.
Sorry to hear that.
But if you change your mind,
Try the first one under the heading of "Manuals" i.e. ((EN) v1.1).
i see the problem, i should of stated im on the phantom 1.1.1. sorry.
Trying to help. Stick with it, don't be 'over' it!
How does this work how is it attached to quad
