    I understand the faa rules with regards to altitude, but was wondering if the p3 advanced has an override and if so how to do this. Thanks

    Type in 500, and click agree to the height approval waiver. ;-)

    Leave the Enable Max Distance Off.

    Lot's of confusion on this altitude "rule". There is no altitude limit for US hobbyist flights. No FAA or other US legal altitude limit for non-commercial drones under 55 pounds. As per Public Law 112-95 Section 336, the FAA may not make any such rules applying to "model aircraft", and all common recreational drones fall within the definition of "model aircraft" under that law. For commercial drone flights the FAA altitude limit is 400 feet above the ground or above any structure within 400 feet of the drone.
