Just wondering if anyone can explain this to me. On my flight records my Max altitude shows as 900+m! Actually says I recorded that flight yesterday but when you go to flight records nothing is over 40m. So what gives?

Sorry. Am a novice. I searched but didn't find my answer.

Not sure myself, but do you have any idea of the altitude above sea level that you were flying at?

What they're supposed to be: Top altitude is the highest point you've launched from (AMSL). Max alt is the max height flown above the launch point for that flight.

OK. Thanks.

To answer the other question my flight starting elevation was 910m.

I don't think those numbers have any accuracy.

The 3.8 m difference between your flight starting altitude and the top altitude is close enough to consider them the same, given that the altitudes are barometer based.
