Testing the altitude capabilities of the Cheerson CX-20 Quadcopter. I took off from the ground and initiated full climb until about halfway through the battery life (approx 5 mins) before hitting the RTL switch to bring it gracefully back down to right where it took off from.
I was pretty pleased with the performance considering this is just the stock CX-20, with added weight from the gimbal, GoPro, GPS tracker, GPS logger and FPV kit. I had full FPV for the duration of the flight from a cheap 200mw FPV kit. I imagine without kit it could go even higher.
