Honestly your best bet is to read the manual, then read it again.
You set the RTH altitude in the Go app, (do this when connected to the Mavic, as it only saves the settings when switched on), also RTH height should be set according to your surroundings at the time.

Check your max altitude setting as well.
It may over-ride RTH height.

"I have set the hight and tested it but it only goes like 30 feet high..."  I agree 100% with Harbourside - read the manual first. The answer to your question is specifically addressed in the manual.

I have checked the max hight and it's at 105 meters and it does go that high
When I have tested this rth hight I have never been more than 50 or 60 feet from home point but it does go up to about 30 feet and that's it but it turns flies in re ajust  works great just not high enough

"If RTH, including Smart RTH and Low Battery RTH, is triggered between 16 ft and 66 ft (5 m and 20 m) from the home point, and Forward Vision System is activated:
1. If aircraft's current altitude is greater than 32 ft (10 m), the aircraft will return to the home point at the current altitude.
2. If aircraft's current altitude is lower than 32 ft (10 m), the aircraft will first automatically ascend to 32 ft (10 m), from the current altitude.

The flight speed will be adjusted to 9 mph (14 kph). The aircraft will start landing immediately if the Forward Vision System is deactivated. When entering Failsafe RTH, the Forward Vision System status is evaluated and RTH will adapt accordingly"

Thanks for all the advice though
