    Realistically, how high have you taken your quad?

    My MJX X-101 only had about 300 yards linear range, but vertically I've taken it completely out of sight :D
    Dunno how high it actually went, but it definitely lost control because the failsafe kicked in and it wound up landing about a half a mile away :)

    Two cars and a golf-cart ... lol ... Of course it wound up in some patchy woods though, so I had to "hoof it" :p

    Before the rules all came in about 1000 feet with a phantom. But you could not see it at that height

    That's the set max in the Naza 1000 feet up and a 1000 feet out if your going that far up you need a camera to see down so you know your up the right way lol

    DuaneM Drone? I don't see any drone ... crap!

    Naza-M V2 can be set to 2000 meters up and 2000 meters out, translates to: 6561.68 feet up and 6561.68 feet out

    I'm not going to tell you if my NAZA-M V2 can pick up a FS-i6s transmitter that high or far away. ;)

    **************** Update edit ******************
    I made a mistake about the limits of the NAZA-M V2 .... it's limited to 10,000 meters up and 10,000 meters out = 6.21 miles each way. I know my transmitter would never go that far!

    I've gone about 200ft with my H22. It is small though.

    It is fun going high!
