I've read some posts about country side .. hills, mountains and the like and got a little confused with all the debate and theories

so can someone set me straight
height for max flight and return to home is based on height of home point no ground level


if the bird is set to a max height (will use 200mtrs as max height for this exercise)
The home point is a rooftop at 250 mtrs above ground

If the max height is based on home point then it solves the initial queries

1. will the drone fly up to 450mtrs ? being 200mtr max setting on a 250 mtr rooftop home height point

if the answer to Q1: is Yes and drone is now 100 mtrs above the rooftop (350mts from ground level)
and flies outward 21 mtrs (past the point of the rooftop) (rooftop is 20 mtrs)

the drone is now 350mtrs above ground
2. Does the bird send an alarm that it is above the 200 mtr max height
from ground it's 350 mtrs high
from home point its 100 mtrs high

if you fly down 100 mtrs (take pics / vid of the building)
the the bird is 150 mtrs from ground and needs to climb to 250 mtrs to get onto the rooftop which is the

3. the max height is based on home point not ground so it can climb to back to the rooftop

4. return to home altitude: is this also based on height of home point
therefore if set to 50 mtrs and the home point height is 200 mtrs
it will on return to home climb to 250 mtrs
