YES, I did search as I assumed this has been discussed before! Frankly, the search function hasn't turned up much at all. So, legalities aside, what IS the maximum altitude? Unless there is some software limitation, the only one that I can see at play would be the WiFi signal. I've read reviews that said the maximum altitude is VERY high. So how high is high?! p.s. No desire to orbit, I'm just analytical! Plus, no air, no lift and I don't have ceramic tile for re-entry. But, higher altitude video/pictures does interest me.
