Have you considered conquering much higher mountain peaks? The challenge, of course, would be having the battery power to do it. So, what if you carefully planned out the task by taking off from the base and landing at pre-determined locations every 1500 to 1640 feet. Then take off again and have a helper every few miles to change out your battery. Then take off again and repeat until you have reached to summit. Be spectacular with DJI goggles. Goofy, I know, but could be fun on a really high mountain. Everest anyone?Given the info, one approach to my mission then might be to ascend to 400 vertical feet at my take off point before I set the RTH location. I would then be able to ascend the mountain a maximum of 400 + 1640 = 2,040, which theoretically from my take off elevation of 7000 ft, would get me to 9000 ft near the summit. Has anyone tried to set a home point while hoovering? and if so, how did you do it?
