2 Days old, updated Firmware, calibrated compass, IMU, etc. Relinked RC upgraded DJI Go, can only get a distance of between 500 and 600 feet before loss of signal and RTH.

Is this firmware, hardware?  I have seen many other cases like this one, and I have also seen many 3000 m flight recordings.

Are you getting any strong magnetic interference or compass error prompts?  When you start losing RC signal check your HD settings and see what strength you channels are.

A link to the Flight Record log would be helpful to see what's happening.

Did you do all of this straight out of the box?

No magnetic interference or compass error prompts.  Sequence of events:
Out of Box:  Updated Firmware / Updated DJI Go app.
Was getting all sorts of Strong Radio Interference errors, tried flying several different locations, it was always the same short range-disconnect-RTH.  I have a mavic pro too and could get 2 miles distance in these same locations.

Reset and relinked the RC and that took care of the interference warnings, but still cannot get any more range before disconnecting.

Sounds to me like "beginner mode".  
Could it be?  
Just guessing.

It would be interesting to see how it flew right out of the box without doing any upgrades or calibrations.

Have you tried to adjust the antennas of the RC during the flight, and check the HD settings?
