    Phantom 4 Pro leaves GPS into Atti Mode

    You are getting a compass error (that's not a failure of the compass) and thatis what's causing the flight controller to ignore the GPS data. Where are you launching the drone from?

    UFO Sighting From My Phantom?

    Except that it can't possibly be right. That's 43000 mph which is also fast enough to eliminate any physical object from the suspect list. That speed is physically impossible down here in our atmosphere so something's not quite correct in your calculations. If the thing is visible in frames...

    Looking for a drone,around 2km(1.25mi) range. Any suggestions,advice,recommendations?

    Lightbridge used on the P4 series gives much better image than old-tech wifi which gets worse when you get further from the controller. The live view with Lightbridge is perfectly stable out almost as far as the signal will reach without paying for additional boosters.

    P4P Remote-requires ipad with cellular or no?

    I'm kind of not. If you've been told that by DJI people at tech support, be advised that they are notorious for giving bad and inaccurate advice. They don't even fly themselves and just read from a script or make things up. The mini 2 used to work but is not up to the task of running current...

    I already answered that in post #6

    P4P Remote-requires ipad with cellular or no?

    Not RTH at all. The drone uses it's own GPS for returning to home. The feature I mentioned was resetting the home point to the current location of the controller (sometimes used for flying from a moving boat or car) Is the mini 3 later and faster than the mini 4?

    P4P Remote-requires ipad with cellular or no?

    Your Phantom has a perfectly good GPS receiver and that's what it uses for nearly all flying features. Follow me and resetting the home point to the current location of the controller are the only features that can use a GPS in your tablet. (and few flyers use those). Follow me is old-tech and...

    Do you have a Max Distance Limit set for 500 metres? If so, turn it off.

    Help! Overexposed and bland photos - Phantom 4 Pro.

    His images were all overexposed because the camera settings were wrong - not because the subject was.

    Will drones be illegal/banned in the near future?

    I would think that would be as likely as people not being allowed to own or drive cars. I've read similar predictions and fears for the last five years but can't see any logic in them. The longer people are flying drones and using them for all kinds of purposes, the less irrational fear and...

    Standard What is the real range of P3s in Europe /Poland?

    The distances quoted in DJI specs are realistic. If you want 1.5 km, you are better to get a Lightbridge or a newer Occusynch drone which will easily go further without the picture breaking up. The Standard is a very low spec machine and just not in the race.

    Phantom 4 pro altitude problem

    The recorded flight data from a flight where it happens is the next place to look. Go to DJI Flight Log Viewer | Phantom Help Follow the instructions there to upload your flight record from your phone or tablet. That will give you a detailed report on the flight data. Come back and post a link...

    Standard What is the real range of P3s in Europe /Poland?

    The Standard uses wifi and has a fairly low range ~500 metres The Pro and Advanced use Lightbridge and can easily go 3-4 kilometres or more in low interference environments.

    Follow-me is pretty old-tech in the world of drones. These days for drones with enough on-board processing power, it's been replaced by Active Track. Google DJI active track to see some demos And the return to home feature is very reliable.

    Phantom 4 pro altitude problem

    Does it give you any message that might help explain? Does it happen everywhere or just one location (a restricted altitude area)? Have you looked at flight data?
