    My phantom 3 drone, that I recently purchased has a limit of 400 ft, does anyone know how I can surpass this limit, or change the settings somewhere, so it allows me to increase max height distance?

    Yes, Turn Off 'beginner mode' in the app.

    Now/then you'll be limited to 500 meters (1640ft.). No way around that.

    Where in the app do you find it? I browsed around the app for a while and didn't see anything.

    You can turn off Beginner Mode in the "Main Controller Settings" section of DJI GO. You'll also need to increase the max altitude here:

    I'm sorry.

    I may have confused the Beginner mode issue.

    Thanks msinger

    In Beginner Mode, the max altitude is 98 feet.
