    Hi all! I'm a newbie to drones and have a P3P. I'm wanting to take it to Lake Tahoe. Any issues I should consider flying at 7,000 to 10,000 feet ASL in temps ranging from 30f to 45f? Thanks

    I'm from the Tahoe area and have been flying every day for the past month or so. The drone functions great and I've even flown it in sub 20 degree weather. You may expect some lower flight times however. So far, I've flown for about 20 or so minutes.

    I'm wondering how will you get it to go that high? Is there a special trick to bypass the 500m altitude limit set by dji? I know before people were holding the rth button. But that is fixed. Just curious.

    He doesn't mean flying to 7000-1000 feet, lake tahoe has an elevation at 7000-10000 feet above sea level.
