Height Records

Post by MPP » Sun Dec 23, 2012 7:23 pm

Haha, well, I just had a real cracker of a time flying up to 1,350,000 feet on St.Maartens with the STB M12. Thor, RedBullAirForce, Seagull, Gizmo and more can all confirm that. So I thought, can anyone break my record? And what are other people's records for heights?

So, post your record heights and see if you can beat my record of 1,350,00!

H... how? How did you get a negative height? However you did it, that's quite impressive!

Height is using an UnSigned Double I think for representation.

In Computing, a signed integer has a 1 at the start of the digit rather then a zero. This makes it invert. The value just get's so bloody high, that the computer start to move the value into that placeholder and...

Boom. Negative.
