is there a way/hack that makes the drone hover low altitude?

Also, as was pointed out in a recent thread about flying low, the biggest problem in trying to fly at 2" height is propwash. It will be very hard to maintain a stable hover, even for just a few seconds.

i don't need to move while low, i just need to be able to go low.
is there a way to programmatically disable it?

Some more detail on your scene requirements would be interesting. You need to fly to the target, hover at 5cm for half a second... perhaps there is enough room (vertical and horizontal) at the hover location that you could do a "touch & go?" I have done land-and-then-takeoff with the video still running. I use TelloFPV with a controller and manual control of the motors.
