Default Anyone knows the max safe distance for PKZ UM's with DX 7?

Hi guys, I'm wondering if anybody knows the max distance safe for the Rx without problems using a DX 7. I like a lot fly my P51 and J3 outdoors and can fly very high but always the possibility of lost the plane stops me.
The max alt I flied is around 250~300 fts I think, but always over me.
If anyone knows about this will be great.

Regards!

Human eyesight is the practical limit, especially with micros.

Oh, yes. Strictly on the range basis, with a DX6i, at about four-to-five hundred feet out (horizontally) I've ended up intentionally grounding the bird as gently as I can to keep from losing it. (yeah, I meant to let her get out that far). Eyeballin' it I'd say about 3 hundred feet distance (out plus up combo) is the maximum distance you'd safely fly these babies without losing visual orientation of them, for a relaxing flight of just cruising and enjoying it without constant control input. But I've read the range is +- 1000 feet on the receiver's end (somewhere I cannot recall--correct me if that's inaccurate) and that's with strong batteries on both ends, of course. Our vision is the definate limiter here, unless you've got FPV and are "in the seat" virtually
