Since the contriller isn't yet available can any UK buyers confirm how high they are getting through their phones with some real life testing?

I am getting between 20-25 meters in height with several disconnects. Even with my iPad I am getting 25 metres max. Thats touching only half of what dji are advertising. In terms of distance I am getting less than 40 metres. Seemingly a long way short.

Were you in Beginner mode? Turn off beginner mode to remove 30m restriction.

I can confirm beginner mode is not on. Getting over 20m height is a struggle. The only time it has gone higher is when rth kicked in and it went to 30 metres autonomously.

Ok things getting strange now. Tonight I tried my iPad Pro. Made sure airplane mode was on and went straight up to 50 metres no problem. Didn't attempt to get any distance on top of this as there was a little bit of wind up there. Tomorrow I'll try my smaller iPad with airplane mode on and see if that will go up to 50 m. I'll also try my s8 again in airplane mode and see if that works. Then I'll try and get some distance whilst being up at 50 and see how far it will go from all 3 devices
