    In the general settings it is set to imperial. Why does it look like it is asking for distance in meters here?

    It really is asking for meters. Hopefully DJI will fix that UI bug in a future release.

    FYI, I set mine to 500m and then just manually fly no higher than 400ft.

    Multiply 3.28 x meters to get the feet you want. Or 400 ft devided by 3.28 to get 121 meters which is close to the 400 ft. Limit in the U.S.

    Siri and I have a terrible relationship. Can't wait to divorce her, but I just know she'll wind up taking the contacts. That B---
