Maybe I'm not saying this right, but is altitude adjusted as you fly? I flew at a new location the other day & took off from the entry of a park that was down by the road. The park however took over a hill. As I flew I noticed that my altimeter would say I was at 60' when it looked to be half that. At one point in my video it looks like I'm about to cut the lawn with my blades & it said I was like 15' off the ground. Does it get it's altitude from where it takes off from or does it somehow have a reading of it as it flies over different terrain? In other words, if you take off at the top of a 100' cliff & go up 20' will it change to 120' as you fly over the cliff's edge? Just curious. Got a little freaked out. Thanks!
