I am often flying in river valleys where the mountains on either side are 1000 feet high. There will not be any aircraft fling below the mountain tops. The 400' limit is silly in this situation.You should not be above 400ft agl even if it can go higher, it's only a matter of time before someone causes a serious incident, the. Gui will allow you to increase the height but I've never needed to be above that height [emoji106]
Yeah do agree with that however if it was me, to keep myself right I would fill in an NSF with the closest ATC tower and let them Review it, it's their job to know everything happening In the airspace, and if they are happy with it then I'd know not to worry and that I was flying safe and using best practice [emoji106]I am often flying in river valleys where the mountains on either side are 1000 feet high.

Here in the UK, certainly for commercial operations, the legal max height is 400ft above the Ground Station. That limit is regardless of surrounding topography. If you have high hills on either side it is still 400ft above the controller. You can't follow the terrain up the side of the hill to get more height. It is 400 ft above the ground you are standing on and that's it. Now see the next paragraph.I am often flying in river valleys where the mountains on either side are 1000 feet high.

Sure you can go higher than 400 feet with the Typhoon H. But why? You risk birds, planes, loss of contact and you could be fined. It is a violation of law. 400 feet is more than sufficient for the large majority of shots unless you want to film above the clouds. Be safe, stay legal.IS THERE A HACK FOR YUNEEC H 400 FEET AND HIGHER
Your reply cover what I was thinking. Only takes those few to make us all look bad, and having flown rotor wing in the "valleys", I guess I have toThere are many reasons a commercial operator would need to fly higher than 400' and the regulations address that specifically to allow it. However, what's a little troubling here is the H instructions describe how to use the GUI to adjust operational parameters but the OP seeks a "hack" to deal with something noted in the instructions/manual. That suggests there's a fundamental flaw with the operator's research and knowledge.
Because of that I wonder if the OP has considered that in deep valleys or canyons the conditions may be such that full scale is completely legal to fly between canyon/valley walls at altitudes lower than the rim of the canyon. MR operations conducted more than 500' from the canyon wall could seriously jeopardize full scale occupants.
