Make sure you have a good GPS fix. Keep clear of trees and tall buildings that may affect GPS reception.

thanks for that. ill keep an eye on gps reception. flying for about 7 month. problem started 3 flights ago. many flights before that with no problem. same on phone or iPad. deleted and reloaded djifly. didn't solve
 
Not sure about the Mini 2 but is there a beginner setting that limits distance? Also I think the manual payload setting and/or over weight prop guards also automatically impose limits in both distance and altitude.
If you go to the Fly App display and check the map (lower left), zoom out and you should see a circle of your flying radius indicating the current limit.

I thought the same but no Beginner mode in DJI Fly App.

Poor GPS reception would normally lead to a height rather than distance restriction but there have been quite a few reported issues with the user account.

Can you try logging out and logging back in again to ensure it is truly logging in correctly. Sometimes with apps like these a login/logout doesn’t synchronise correctly and a server can think you’re still logged in or out (incorrectly) and doesn’t let you login again if an app is uninstalled and re-installed.
 
Echoing Phantomrain above, if you switched phones / tablets and they were not signed into your DJI account, you will get those exact problems.
 
Max distance for any drone is the distance at which you can still see it. Yes, that's me, Drone Police. Does not matter if your drone can still receive signal at 4 miles....cars can do way more then 65mph but does not mean it's legal or that you should do it.

Did you read the question? 🤣

Doesn't seem to be an issue with "unreasonable" distances, but just the really small safety limits that kick in if your controller is not connected to the phone properly or you're not logged into the Fly app properly.
