I see people reach some people reaching the clouds.

But on the website it says the max height is

'Maximum flying height 36.58 metres.'

I thought 500 metres was that max?

Maximum height in the UK is 120 metres. That's the law.

On the Argos website description it say 36 metres..

What they restricted them?

Thanks, helpful document.

The question being asked is.. out of the box the drone is capable of reaching 120m?

Which model are you referring to?  If it's the Mavic Mini, I can confirm Argos-bought Mavic Minis have a maximum altitude setting of 500 metres; as mentioned, 120m or 400 feet is the maximum allowed by law in the UK.  You can adjust the max height setting to any value you like up to 500 metres though.  Argos do not restrict the drones they sell.

Yes I was referring to the Mavic Mini.

Thanks for the answer Ian. That clears up my confusion.

Hi, thank you for reaching out. I hope that you could get the best recommendation form our fellow DJI members here. Also, you may recommend coordinating this concern to your local aviation authority for you to have the exact height that allows on your location. Thank you for your continued support!

I did a test and on a windless day it reaches 500 meters, with the wind forget it.
But it was only a 2 minute test ...
