Greetings everyone. Is there anyone out there that flies their Q 500+ at high altitudes, (5-6K ft)? I just moved from sea-level and haven't tried flying it in the thinner air yet? I appreciate any insight...

Batteries wear down faster, as motors have to work harder in thin air, other than that I have noticed no differences;)

Thanks Drone Clone. I'll hopefully have some time this week to get some video footage of the Rockies as long as I stay below 8K feet...

straight above your head is where the signal is the weakest, due to the shape of the antenna and the corresponding radiation pattern
