Dear friends, I'm from Brazil. I made the new firmware update for Phantom 4 as recommended by DJI in August 2017. After this update I could not fly more than 30 meters away and 50 meters high. Even logging, as recommended by you, I can not fly more than 30 meters away and 50 meters high in Brazil.  Grateful for the attention.

Nice video! Thanks for sharing! The flying altitude must follow the local regulations. The highest is 500 meters if there is no restrictions.

Another person(s) with apparent lack of judgement taking to the sky who clearly hasn't read any manual or checked on rules/regulations.  This post and some of the responses scare me, this is why so many responsible drone enthusiasts are being forced out due to regulations.

Lucky I live in an area where passenger aircraft are forbidden to fly so I can fly from 3000m to 4000m altitude all the time.  No jets over my drones.
Took this photo a few days ago. Sorry haven't got it off my sd card.  Around 3200m altitude.

Jets, such inconvenient aircraft. They come in and photo bomb your mist covered bridge shots.

And if DJI keep forcing limitations at same pace, soon all the remaining enthusiasts are back in the DIY business and does that make it safer in any way?

Having used a lot of time in hacker spaces where people build their own octocopters capable of flying around with a DSLR i really regret i took the easy way and used a fortune on a P4P.

I think you are confused. The limitations aren't from DJI, they are regulations/laws that come from government agencies and localities.

How high can this drone fly?

Up to the limit you set in Max Altitude, but in any case not more than 500 meters AGL, which is the firmware limit.

Bit hard to see the sea from where I am lol

DJI Drones have a max ceiling capability of 6000m.  Just need to launch at 5500m to get there

I am not at all confused.
When DJI limit height to 500m above takeoff point you wont be able to fly up along a mountain or other obstacles even if the local regulation allow this, some countries has no regulations but still users have those limits forced on them.
When DJI's GEO system is implemented in a way so the drone won't take off even that no rules say i am not allowed to fly in the area, then it is DJI's limits and no government regulation that is blocking our freedom.

I think you mean it will not fly higher than 500m above home point. Ground level is another thing. Here is a picture of my village over 1200m below where my drone is.

Yes, of course. I suppose what I meant was the ground at takeoff location :-)...
