    Hi there -

    My last two flights involved distance..

    First was to film while in a convertible, second was on my bike..

    Both flights reached a point where, even though P3S was only 100-200' feet away the depth was showing 1600' and maximum distance reached. So, I actually had to get closer in order to move it around again..

    Searched the forum but didn't see this specific issue. Any ideas?

    Thanks guys ! What an amazing community.

    To clarify, was 50' - 100' in height for both flights

    If you were on a bike/in car, the distance could be measured from where you originally started. Go to settings and turn off maximum distance to fix this.
