I was wondering how high the DJI Mavic Mini could fly before the air became too thin. I know that there are restrictions in the app (and probably in the drone/controller itself) but if you were able to override those things, how high would it go (not including battery life)? Thanks in advance!

The maximum altitude is 3000m (about 9800 ft.)

(Note that this is relative to mean sea level, not the ground.)

    $\begingroup$ Note that you'd likely need all kinds of FAA/regulatory permits before you can go anywhere close to that altitude. IIRC the limit for non-permitted use is like 400 ft AGL $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Unless your launch site is already at altitude? You could be 100ft AGL and 9900ft. $\endgroup$
