Fly Maui, I need help with a phantom four, I want to fly over a ravine, but I’m afraid that the drone will drop down to the 400 foot recommended high elevation, how do I keep the drone at the same height of the takeoff from the cliff ?
It wont. It will still see "zero" altitude if you are flying level with the cliiff. Your altitude will go negative after that. Unless, you are in an area where flight is restricted. Then that is another can of worms, so to speak.I want to fly over a ravine, but I’m afraid that the drone will drop down to the 400 foot recommended high elevation, how do I keep the drone at the same height of the takeoff from the cliff ?
Did I not tell you that there was? Again, unless you are in a restricted area, without variances and/or FAA authorization of some sort. Pay attention to the regulations and you won't have these type of questions, and you may also learn a lot...I always see Ken Heron flying Off the edge of cliffs under bridges over water he’s the one on YouTube I’m Guessing there’s got to be away but thanks
I just offered the explanation. You can fly below the launch point. You have to be aware to reset the RTH altitude far above your launch point. And what would learn from viewing this? Nothing. I fly completely legally, safe and abide by any regulations set forth per the FAA, and/or AMA. So there is not much to learn, other than possibly some additional vidography tips. And yourself?You need to look on YouTube and see Ken Heron doing the same thing I want to do and not in a restricted area so try looking at YouTube**Comment removed by Moderator**
The Phantom will not drop. It will maintain the altitude you are flying, unless you manually drop it. What is it about that you don't understand? The altitude limit is a regulation, not an indiscriminate altitude determined by the aircraft. If you launch above your desired altitude there is nothing to stop you from descending or ascending.I want to fly over a ravine, but I’m afraid that the drone will drop down to the 400 foot recommended high elevation
