Hi,

I was flying inside a large atrium (15m x 20 m x 40 m high) of a building we are working on (images attached). I had the P4 in "atti" mode and took off.

Before take off It said that I had no satalite reception which was expected.

It would only let me fly 8m high and would hover. It gave me a warning saying that it had interference or something.

Is this due to all the metal around? How do I get around it?

Thanks,

We have found that if you cannot get a clear GPS signal (even in ATTI mode) it will arbitrarily limit your height.... since it cannot figure out how high it has gone it will give you a false ceiling. Difficult situation you have there... good luck.
