    Hook up the GUI and see what your limits are.
    Adjust accordingly...
    Good luck,

    The difference is probably because 120m is basically 400' - the max altitude programmed into it. It's possible you misread the 400 FEET altitude as meters, and obviously that's a big difference. Just guessing at it, but that's what jumps out at me as the probable cause (unless you misspoke and it was only going to 120 feet instead).

    120 meters converts to 393.7 feet to be exact, and 400 feet is the ceiling advertised as well as law.

    Here is Canada, we can only go to 90 M, approx 295 ft. The Q500 will go to 400 ft 120 M, but Transport Canada has limited us.

    Lol.... Reminds me of this little incident one day....
    A cop looks down at the speedo in my Lexus IS350F and see's it says 160mph.
    He asks me... "How fast will this car go?". In a flash I answered "On the interstate it will do about 70mph".
    We both laughed and went on our way....
