You have been fined 2,322,583 Vietnamese Dong (= $100usd) for multiple violations by the drone police.

I think it would be easier to find a rain man (idiot savant). Three minutes to Wapner...

Well, that was a $140(US) flight...scratch one battery almost certainly. To each his/her own I guess, but I just don't get the "max range business." I understand the land speed record and climbing Everest, but the Mavic 2's max range? Absolutely, positively not worth the risk.

When we all get new regulations jammed down our throats, maybe they will separate out "teenagers" and adults. Maybe the adults who flew by common sense rules and can prove it with flight logs will be exempt. The adventurous Male Brain, invulnerable youth who flew a hundred miles with their drones.... will be sent back to skateboards for recreation.

Surely climbing Everest and breaking the Land Speed record are more risky? :-D

My record is so far 19.202kms. This was running the battery down to 3.55v per cell though(700m/1min at 0%)
Likely lessens the overall battery life vs flying absolutely to the % scale.

For those nay-sayers, lipo’s are ‘safe/durable’ to about 3.2v. although to maximise the amount of cycles you can get it’s better to stay above 3.5v.

The 0% for go4 is quite safely above this number. 3.6v in my case. Flying to 0%, won’t be a big issue for the M2P/Z battery. Assuming you fly within the temperature window DJI request.
