    Have you checked the max height setting and turned off Beginner mode and Max Distance mode in the DJIGo app? I'd start there.

    P4 will not fly higher than 120 metres AGL.
    Personally that is high enough for me and meets UK guidelines.

    FAA says no higher than 400 feet. Put it at 121m and you can go 3 more feet @ 396 feet

    That is not true in the US. Guidelines for hobbyists suggest the 400' limit here, but the P4 is not restricted to that height. At least not those units sold here.
