How High Can You Legally Fly a Drone?
The FAA mandates that all commercial and recreational drone operators stay at or below 400 feet. Drones must not be interfering with any airspace, and must be maintained by a drone operator at all times with line of sight. Drones are, however, legally permitted to fly up to 400 feet above permanent objects such as buildings.
How Far Can You Legally Fly a Drone?

How Long Can a Drone Stay in the Air?
Most commercial drones can now stay in the air during flight for more than 20 minutes. However, flight times are diminished as you go to higher elevations, endure colder weather, or endure strong winds. The FAA requires that licensed drone operators not operate in areas of cumulonimbus clouds, as well as stay below 400 feet AGL (above ground level). Drones have a built-in failsafe that will warn the drone operator of a low battery.
