So I was flying inside a semi restricted zone. First time I had to enter my phone number or CC pop up, got the pass code and did 2 full batteries of filming (only restrictions are within 5nm of small county airport and I was in the bottom of a river bed well below the sides of the canyon. On the 3rd battery I went back up to about 140' and got the max altitude. Double checked and my account settings were limited to 400' no other things in the controls indicated that I was restricted mode. I tried going into sports mode, same issue with Max altitude. On screen it showed altitude of 100' when it would stop. I am totally at loss why my Mavic wouldn't ascend anymore. I have never had to use a txt coffee for authorization and this definitely is not under any tfr our other FAA guideline.
