I am trying to follow these instructions to send eth without syncing on my pc.

./geth-1.9.0 --maxpeers 0 console

Then

TX={ from: FROM, to: TO, value: VALUE, nonce: NONCE, gas: GAS, gasPrice: GAS_PRICE }
personal.unlockAccount(FROM)
eth.sendTransaction(TX)

With GAS=21000 I get

Error: exceeds block gas limit

I think this is because

eth.getBlock("latest")

is reporting a very old block (maybe genesis) which has gasLimit:5000.

So how do I send eth from the console without syncing?
