    I got this message when flying the i1 with full throttle and full elevator.

    Any one got it?

    No but I guess what would scare me more is flying further than visual line of sight at nearly 1,000 up!

    Seen others reporting it before. Obviously, even if it's good at protecting itself and is telling you it's doing so you should ease up on the sticks.
    Even if it basically flies itself it's still an aircraft, and is affected by altitude, temperature etc like any other. You shouldn't expect to be able to yank it around full blast in all conditions while happily ignoring physics :)

    Not everybody is a responsible pilot....unfortunately.

    Probably lives in a country where it's still the wild wild west

    interesting message to pop...I've gone way faster than that never seen it

    I don't usually fly it with full sticks but got this message and was wondering if any one else seen it before.

    Please try full throttle and full elevator for more than 40 seconds next time you fly, i was flying in an area at 1250m above the sea.

    I can't and wouldn't want to since full throttle for 40 seconds would put my aircraft way above the legal limit of 120m/400ft.

    I got this message once at full up and forward at around 100 feet on a 102 degree day. Really muggy so it must have ran the props too hard in the Hot, humid air. That's what I figured at least. Just like a plane, hot and humid you have to lighten up or lengthen your takeoff run.

    That is the main reason for your lack of power.
    Density altitude is what rules it all :)

    Yes I think so.Was flying in the Alps at 8000 ft and saw this message once.
    No problem at all.

    Well this just means if you dont see this message though holding stick to maximum the Inspire could be much faster and is just blocked by firmware restrictions.

    I understand that the message is your primary focus but I would like to point out that you are a flying at 1,000 ft and the legal limit is 400 ft. I would recommend that you fly below 400 ft and see if you get the same message.

    almost 300 m and 860 m distance, way above 120m height and 500 m VLOS by law

    You will get this warning when you exceed the recommended speed of the aircraft. Let's say you are flying the same direction of the wind at full throttle and you are getting an extra boost from a gush of wind. You are overclocking the range rotation of the motors.

    I got that message one time flying very aggressively at low altitude while pushing the inspire to the limits.
