Oooops, Just got new AR 2.0 Drone but I live at 8,500 ft

Post by DaleinCO » 15 Jul 2015, 00:45

I built and flew gas powered RC airplanes in the 80's and 90's in Texas so not new to RC and thought I'd like to get back into the hobby, but I made the mistake of of buying an AR Drone 2.0 recently to fly here in Woodland Park CO at 8,500 ft and of course this high I can't even maintain at altitude of 10 ft or so and controls are very slugish. I was a dufus and should have known better to buy before checking if it would even fly at this altitude, but here I sit.... I've tried reducing weight a bit by removing outside stick-on covering and balancing blades (the cheap fixes first) but the drone is still pretty much a flying brick at this altitude. Any ideas about how/if I can fly at this altitude, or else pointing me to old posts would be greatly appreciated. thx - Dale
