My previous was 16000ft, couldn't get any further, did it twice over 2 sunny days using 5.8ghz, same place today, slightly hazy and I stopped at 20000ft, using 2.4ghz, i thought I was still in 5.8ghz on the way back I thought to check it cause signal was breaking a bit, switched it to 5.8 and the signal shot up to full, may have been able to top the 20k feet, got back with 32% battery too. Well chuffed I was lol

Nice.  That's really good for CE mode.  Can you tell us about your setup?   Have you seen this thread?  

https://phantompilots.com/thread ... -leaderboard.72554/

The max distances listed on the first post are not accurate as the OP stopped updating almost three years ago, but you can find them in the thread.

Probably not, I am quite happy with that, don't want to push my luck, yesterday was quite favourable with regards to the conditions, with probably about 2mph winds at 10m, didn't get any high wind warnings at all

I have been able to get 20,100ft with my Mavic 2 Zoom, it seems like I can get probably more but I'm flying from my backyard :-)

LOL, how many visual spotters did you employ along that route?
The farthest I've flown was just over 6000' off the coast of Narragansett, RI. I had perfect video feed and realized I could go farther, but decided it would be wrecklessly irresponsible to attempt that and so I turned the craft around and came back. At the turn around, I had 73% battery remaining. Another factor was strong winds along the ocean. I felt is was risky going out as far as I did. It only took a minute and a half to get out there, which is part of the reason I didn't realize I had flown that far until  I looked at the status display and had an "oh sh-t!" moment seeing a number higher than I'd ever seen before on the horizontal distance readout.

Wish i could fly from here, sadly, even though a village, still to built up, here my normal flying spot at the start marker, its in the middle of no where, no roads, only farm dirt tracks etc, one house enroute if you class just over 900m from the flightpath as enroute

I have to use google maps due to failing to record the entire journey. :/

Fly from an upstairs open window and you can probably push it further.

That might be true as it came back with plenty of battery power...

"ft" is an abbreviation for the word "feet" which is a unit of measurement.  A foot equals twelve inches.
