Yes, i sow the video some days ago, i haven't tested the procedure, however i think it is not safe to go high over 120m .

I finally got my xiro back from california. I tested the override for the height limit. It does work. I took my xiro out today and it would stop moving away from me at 600 meters. Is there a way to override this? The paper instructions say "Adjustable in APP ground station function" I cannot find this.

Hi, thanks for sharing your test, some weeks ago i asked to the Xiro facebook page the availability (in the app) to change the "limit" as reported in the manual, i am still waiting for the answer..... :)

I found a website that appears to have the previous versions of the apps for download. https://apkpure.com/xiro/com. I was going to try to load a previous version on another phone I have to see if I could change the distance limit. I cannot get the apk file to install. I really dont know what I'm doing but I am going to try. I downloaded them to my computer but dont know where to drop the file on my phone.

Found the video from the company that is selling these extenders....
Take a looky...
They make bold statements about extending the range by X4.
If you check out some of the dji phantom youtube videos with this fitted , they are reporting as working great....mmmmmm anyone like to test or will I be the guinea pig.
Not bothered about going beyond 600m but want to keep good video feed. instead of flaky drop outs.

I would like to see at x4 range how good your video feed would be as I very much doubt you will be able to see the aircraft :)
