    I have heard many people say that it is illegal to go over 400' in the US. I've also heard that it isn't illegal but the FAA recommends you stay under that. I would love to be able to fly up to 700' if it is legal. Can someone please tell me the max height you are legally allowed to fly in the US.

    You may not be allowed to fly at all in NFZ areas.

    Love for heights sometimes becomes critical for others, I have seen people asking to go much beyond 500 m (1500'). There is never ending to this craze, desire to fly higher and higher goes on.
