Indoor height restricted?

    I'm trying to fly the Breeze indoors in a big hall. I even can get a gps fix. However there Breeze doesn't want to climb higher than 3m.

    Is the breeze restricted for flying indoor? And how does it know that it's indoor even with GPS on?

    Identical in underground salt mine. Altitude limit was set to 80m and calibration ok !.
    Sometimes, not want to start engines!

    3-3.5 meters altitude, control was very good

    So last Saturday I had to film in a gymnasium. I had already flewn indoors in a living room etc. Although the breeze tends to drift slightly, it worked kinda ok.

    Now in the gymnasium, things were different. Our goal was to film from close to the ceiling, with the camera pointing down. So I set off and made the drone climb. This happened very slowly and at 3m it wouldn't even climb higher. I guess the 3m is the maximum altitude for the ground sensing sensors as the IRS to work.
    Also the drone was very unstable. It drifted in almost any direction, even up and down and sometimes even not listening to the controls. Also it wouldn't fly faster than 1m/s. Really annoying.

    I managed to kinda get it into the directions I wanted it to, but still far from good enough to shoot some decent film.

    At the meantime there was a parrot drone, and it completely destroyed my breeze. It felt like the parrot was up in the air constantly, while I was trying to connect to my drone, rebooting it many times. The batteries of the parrot didn't last as long as the breeze's, but they recharged much faster. And the Parrot was so stable indoor, flying fast and very controllable, in any direction. The Parrot is also better protected against crashes and hard landings. It's made of softer material so it doesn't get a hard knock every time it lands, as the breeze does. And it can do a flip! Not very useful, but it gives a bigger wow factor.

    I still think the breeze is the more mature drone, but for indoor flying, the parrot kicks it's ***. The only thing it lacks is a rotating camera for filming under an angle
