    I want to bring my phantom up a mountain to scout ahead and have some good pictures but I will need to remove the height limit as I will need to take it above 500m from its launch point, and where I want to climb doesn't have any aircraft above it. What version did DJI implement the height limit and which version should I use for my new replacement Phantom 3 Advanced.

    That limitation is in all versions of the firmware.

    Someone can climb first, fly a/c, lower it down and take your pictures while climbing.

    I do this routinely with my P3 (example below flying about 2800 feet up). You have to have firmware version 1.3.2 or earlier and use Litchi 2.3.1 or earlier.

    Just want to add, you can't downgrade lower than 1.5 if you are already on latest 1.6

    Are you climbing the mountain as well? You could make the trip in 500 meter increments, i.e. land the Phantom somewhere as it approaches the limit and then catch up to it during the climb, and repeat.
