New videos discussing no waypoints above 397'

Hi Tudor, I just watched your new videos that were posted to see if I have missed anything.

I see in your app that I can still plan a mission up to 984' by holding down the slider for a few moments to unlock it. From your video it seems that I will be unable to use these high altitude waypoints in a new DJI restriction. Is this right to assume for the time being? I have some dense canopy to map out on a woodlot and was hoping to use a high altitude mixed with high overlap to get a quality map. It would suck to drive all the way out there to find out it wasn't going to work, so I figured I would check with you about this one.

Hi Matt,
DJI is limiting waypoints to below 400 ft on their most recent firmware update. Among other issues, they have really starting limited what can be done. We will certainly update you if they remove it. I would suggest complaining. A lot. We have other axes to grind and can't push this issue as well.

I want to map an area which includes a hill and obstacles on the hill.

The foliage is too dense on the hill (and I didnt get a drone to have to climb the hill) :) to allow launch there.and to get the hill in the map, which is where a Georeference is (statue) I need to be higher to get the overlap on the trig station. An example location is 10-19'35"N 107-5'4"E. This will give you an idea, the statue is 30 metres high. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/23449063?source=wapi&referrer=kh.google.com

Any suggestions?
