Today at the beach phantom 4 pro stops at 50 meters distance and says "Maximum distance reached"... and at about 26 m for height.   Message said to check my distance and height settings.  Height I have 120M  and NO distance setting at it (its off).  ?

prior to this happening I did get a wind warning.  It wasnt that windy.   ???

I also had this problem. Tonight, at 6:40pm I was flying fine. at 9:20PM it limited me to 100 Feet and said maximum altitude reached. Height was also 120M and no distance setting. It locked me out at 100FT and I couldn't get video of the fireworks...

Please help!

nope its a bug. signing in/out dotn fix it. the only way is to start, fly up, land again, turn off drone and start again. limitation will be off. very annoying but i will never update anything from DJI anymore. it will only get worse every time i did that before.

Is it maybe because i start the app in flight modus (no network connection)? yesterday i did a restart of my drone with no results.

I found this online, not verry usefull for me...

Dear Customers,

DJI will soon introduce a new application activation process for international customers. This new step, to take effect at the end of this week, ensures you will use the correct set of geospatial information and flight functions for your aircraft, as determined by your geographical location and user profile. All existing flight safety limitations, such as geofencing boundaries and altitude limits, remain the same.

Even if you have registered when activating your aircraft upon purchase, you will have to log in once when you update the new version of DJI GO or GO 4 App. If you have forgotten your password since your initial login, you can reset it using a function within the DJI GO and DJI GO 4 apps.

You will need a data connection to the Internet for your smartphone or tablet when you log in, in order to verify the account information and activate the updated software or firmware. If this activation process is not performed, the aircraft will not have access to the correct geospatial information and flight functions for that region, and its operations will be restricted if you update the upcoming firmware: Live camera streaming will be disabled, and flight will be limited to a 50-meter (164-foot) radius up to 30 meters (98 feet) high.

The feature applies to all aircraft (except standalone A3 and N3) that have been upgraded to the latest firmware or when using future versions of the DJI GO and GO 4 apps.

DJI encourages pilots to always follow applicable laws and regulations in the countries where they operate, and provides information about these regulations on its FlySafe website at flysafe.dji.com.

Sincerely,

Your DJI Team

sometimes i dont get that warning at all and can fly 2-3 batteries empty. sometimes i get it everytime i start my P4.
its pretty annoying but i can live with that as far i am not forced to do any future crazy disaster update. my drone is free now and i can fly how i want and not how DJI have mercy/mood and let me fly. so i will never turn that WIFI on anymore in order to "fix" this small problem.

You also need to disable beginner mode, login at DJI in the App and keep away from places where DJI has decided you should not be flying.

I’m having same problem. Flew fine a few weeks ago and today 50 meters out max and 30 meters up max. Obstacle avoidance icon on ap stays red too. Not sure what’s going on. I think it is an ap issue. Upgrading firmware didn’t fix it.
