    How high and how far can Typhoon Q500 4K fly? Writes that he has a height limit of 120m . But one time I managed to a height of 126.7 m . And how far can it fly horizontally? As far as it goes the transmitter's range allows? Does it also have any distance restriction? I managed to fly on over 600m. But I came back because I was starting to lose sight of him.

    I fly mine out to about 220m so I can keep it in sight and see what it is doing, that is where I feel comfortable, and about 123m high...so you are in the ball park on both of the height measurements, they will always vary a little...I live in the U.S. so you must keep it in sight at all times and the height limit is 400 feet ..if you go up fast it may go just a little over 400 feet but it comes back down to the preset height...at 400 feet is is getting pretty small and lonely up there...That is at least three times higher than any trees we have around here, most of our trees top out at about 80 feet

    I am understand that these are the maximum height (1000m) and distance (2500m) limits that can be set in this drone?

    Notice the "range" is a Smart Mode limit. I have added high gain antennas to my Q500 and have flown it 3,800+ feet distant with no problem. Altitude geofence can be set as high as 8,000 feet but reality will be limited to somewhere around 3,000+ because of battery life. I had difficulty with video downlink above 1,300' AGL with stock antennas. With my own combination of 2.4 GHz/5.8 GHz high gain antennas added to the quadcopter, I still had great video downlink even at 2500' AGL. These numbers are, of course, hypothetical as I would NEVER think of flying outside the "legal" envelope (wink-wink).

    3000 feet is almost 1km. I would be afraid to fly up to this heigh . I have GiFi 6400mAh batteries and yes but be afraid to fly so high. Mainly I mean to increase the range of image vision in horizontal flight because it is really poor in this drone.

    How far horizontally can the Q500 4K fly without any modifications? Has the distance limit programmed similarly like the height?
