Limit  FeatureLayer features to the current extent?

Is there a way to get FeatureLayer to limit features to the current extent?  I’m trying to use a FeatureLayer to display some features in 3D.  The layer has ~180,000 features.  When displaying features, FeatureLayer doesn’t seem to take the current extent into account, and tries to get everything. 

 

If I’m zoomed into a small area, this usually means that nothing is displayed, because the server just returns the first 1000 features it finds in the database (maximum # of records returned is 1000), and none of these features happen to be in the current extent!

 

Is there a parameter I need to set?  Or is this something that will be addressed in a future API version?
