    Anyone can tell me whether my p3pro would be able to take off from the altitude of 3.840 meters?

    3.8 meters......Your roof? It will take off...but it will read 0 for alt from wherever it takes off from.

    From the P3 specs ...
    Max Service Ceiling Above Sea Level 6000 m
    Your Phantom should be fine at 3800 metres.

    Up in the Alps there should be some great scenery - just watch out for strong winds.

    Some countries swap the use of the period and comma.
    Or it could even be a typo.

    Might be polite to ask unless you prefer to assume.

    I did not know that either so I don't think he was being impolite.
    How would those countries write 3.840 (ei,less than 4)?

    Google is your friend!

    What's this "Google" you speak of?

    And you didn't answer the question. You wrote 3 thousand 8 hundred and 40.
    How would they write 3 point 84 if they don't use a period?

    Read this (slowly):

    some countries swap the use of the period and comma.









    Now I wrote it thrice and gave you the example you asked for.

    You clearly didn't read my question slowly enough. Peace out.

    He did! You didn't.... LOL

    The key word in his reply is "SWAP".

    So less than 4 would be written as 3,840 (as N017RW answered...)

    Just over 3800m would be 3.840

    I knew that some countries used the . instead of the comma for large numbers - but I didn't realize the opposite was also true...

    In some countries I've seen that they don't use a , or a . as their thousand separator and instead they just use a space.
