HI Michael, Thanks for your support but our question is not related to the map itself, but to the mission planner limitation distance. When we are trying to make a mission over 50KM distance, we are getting the message" The distance is too long" when we click to check the Elevation graph in the mission planner.

We would like to know how can we change the limitation in the elevation graph  t get more than 50km ?

here is the correct message:  "" the error is "Too many/few WP's or to Big a Distance "

Flight time with batteries in 12 motors config is estmated at 10  min, if we choose lower disk loading it can be 15 to 17 min. So definitively need a range extender. We are working on it!
