I used to own a few DJI drones, like p3s, p3p, p4, mp, spark, mavic mini... every drone I have, I always try to modify it and push the limit of distance as far as I can. I don’t know why, but that feeling when I can break the record, I feel really really excited.
The furthest I can reach was 8km (about 26000ft) with phantom 3 pro. Now that I’m fed up with Chinese-made drones, I switched to 3dr Solo, an American-made drone. I know, certainly, it isn’t the right platform for me to satisfy my distance addict, but I will try, and I want to prove that even 3dr can fly far and wide, while providing excellent video WITH AUDIO that not any other high end drone can provide.

Currently, the best I can reach is 3437m (about 11000ft).
I didn’t even fly in rural area. I flew from my business location in northwest Houston, Texas. I also didn’t use Solex, just the stock Solo app, with some modifications on antenna, no GPS/wifi card upgrade. No propellers upgrade. That’s why, there’s still a lot of space for me to improve the distance, I’m pretty sure I will break this record in the future. Let’s see!

I didn't know they were issuing BVLOS waivers to individual pilots yet..... Will have to revive my app.
