    Hey guys I'm loving my P3 pro! I have a question on setting though, when I fly over my farm fields I'm hitting a restriction at somewhere around 1650 feet. It won't let me go further. I'm using it to check crop irrigation and need to go further. I'm thinking it's a setting I'm not hitting. I've tried setting the max distance to 2500m but it's not doing anything thanks for the help!!

    Try turning off this setting in DJI GO:

    If you're not already, you may want to consider Litchi. With it, you can use flighthub online and map out a mission or missions around your property and just send off the drone to run the mission as often as you want.

    Turning the max distance off should work.
