    Flying at night with metal flashlight

    I am kind of scared to fly at night. I don't have the money to blow on a professional drone light or beacon. I have a metal flashlight. I was wondering if the metal flashlight would interfear since it's metal. Will it interfear. Thank's for the help.

    Range extender

    Will the addition of a 3 antenna ($57 one) help/eliminate the "Warning strong interference" warning? Was considering getting one for P3S if it would correct this issue. Or will this JUST add further flight distance when no interference is present?

    Professional Interference bands on controller video

    I have two P3 Pros. On one I installed the hdmi unit. The other remains unchanged. When I turn on and fly the Pro with the hdmi connector, there is a lot of interference shown on the screen of my tablet. This does not happen on the other drone. What is the problem? Can anyone give advice?
