    Just sharing info from Russian web sites.

    Wanna go higher than 500 meters? Send your quad as far as possible and press RTH, while it is coming back push your left stick up... and technically that is it. It will stop going up only reaching the home point coordinates. Wanna break your quad or attract attention of FAA or cops. Follow my advises.

    I'm afraid this feature (? bug?) can break no fly zone limit... Don't try.

    Because Sergei is a really nice person who is adding to the knowledge base of Phantom users. Notice the antenna reflector that he uses about halfway through the video (I think that's what this test flight was for).

    I don't think it's a bug. Just an inadvertent feature. In earlier versions of the Phantom, you had no control over the aircraft when it's in RTH mode and some people saw their Phantom attempt RTH right through a tree. Later versions of the firmware gave the user throttle authority so that you could raise the bird over an obstacle you hadn't expected.

    Sergei is not the OP. tvckz posted one of Sergei's video links where, I think, Sergei was testing an antenna reflector for the P3.

    This "feature" was posted here a couple of months ago. So it's not something that was just discovered.

    I knew who it was right away and I was a little shocked to see him at 813 or 2667ft. I have watched several of his videos, and actually removed him from my subscriptions due to going nutz with posting so many recent videos. Btw, I'll have to say I thought it was impossible for him to go without talking, until now.

    That P3P crawled like a snail going up at 2.3mph.

    First you say - you know it is me, after 5 min you say you know it is not me. Is it a common practice in Mississippi to say something just to say something?
