Is there a way to remove the 400 foot height limit?

It is a user configurable limit, because there are some cases where flying higher than 400 feet is legal (eg: flying in the vicinity of a tall building or radio tower).

In the app, but you can’t go above unless you agree to take the hit if anything goes wrong.

The 400ft limit is AGL based on where you take off so there's not a lot of need to disable this unless you're flying up a cliff.

Exactly. I just have to remember to return it to 400 afterward.

Also don't use RTH if you change this.
Some people just fly up to 1000ft up a mountain and then hit RTH.
You have to follow the 400ft rule on the way back also.

I’m sure if you go and ask your local law enforcement agency, they'd be happy to tell you how to do this

This is correct.

I set my limit to 400meters to fly UP this valley.  At the start of this video I was at 1100ft above take off point......but never over 300ft agl.

Also you'll get warnings from the Go4 app (at least on the M2Z) over 120 meters.

I hope the lack of features are not intended with Fly.

Very sure, 500 feet is only 152 meters.
In Italy we dont't use feet.

Some of us actually do fly up cliffs, like I did today and I hit the 400' limit.

Can somebody confirm how to remove this? With my Phantom 4 in the DJI Go app there was a way to remove this, but I can't find it in the DJI Fly app.
Thanks

You just go to Menu, Safety and slide in a higher max altitude.

Yeah, that wouldn't go well.
