    Want to follow terrain of a hill. Unpractical to launch from the base of the hill.


    I have the elevations on the hill - complied to KML file. But - will NOT allow me to go lower then 4 feet from the launch point - which is from the top of the hill.


    I can only image that I am not the only person who would use this feature - Any one trying to explore a canyon, Mountain side, or flying into a pit! . . .

    This would certainly be a useful feature for me.  I want to map walls of an open pit mine and need to be able to fly below the take-off point.  We have quite accurate DEM's so as long as the flight plan stays above the DEM I cannot see any reason why this could not be possible.
