Q500 4K Is there Geo Fence in Angle Mode (Pilot)

Discussion in 'Q500/Q500+/Q500 4K/Typhoon G' started by PilotRichard, Aug 9, 2018.

  1. So before I change my GUI Altitude Settings (moving to Antarctica), I read that the Limits for Distance and Alt. are only "Active" while in Smart Mode. I as a veteran Pilot always fly in Angle/Pilot Mode anyways, so does this mean I can fly above 400' AGL, while in Angle Mode only ?
    Question #2 If I change the GUI Geo Fence Altitude and Distance limits, will I then need to Re-Calibrate my Typhoon Q500 K, for Compass ?

    We ask that you keep your question to one post, this is the third such post you have made asking the same question. It is all about keeping information in one spot so others can also benefit from the answer instead of spending hours searching.

    To answer your question again, if you are always flying in angle mode you only need to adjust the Altitude limits, default is 122M and can go up to 1000M (3280') not that you would ever need to go that high.

    Are you allowed to fly drones in Antarctica ?

    You should remember that there is set rate of assent/decent, and that you don't want to come straight down either. Your battery is only going to last 20 minutes (less). Not sure how the cold will effect your flight either, battery, motors, even some of the electronics have an operating range. You might get way up there, but might not have power, part way back down. I've done the 400 feet, as probably most do, but wasn't that special. I usually stay under 100 feet, where I can more easily see what I'm doing

    Wouldn't thing there are too many flight restrictions. I know it's not just a slab of ice, with a few penguins, but don't see it as have much of a population (scientists).

    Have all kinds of International rules down there......But that cold could be a real problem, don't know how the humidity is down there but it gets colder as you go up, you will need to consider icing also , ice could form on the body and the props..and I understand the winds are crazy bad down there,,, and being that close to the South Pole, wonder how the compass will work and the GPS....The satellites are way up on the equator....
