    If you're in the US, is there any reason not to be in FCC mode? My phantom is current all stock, so I only get about 1000' on my FPV and I start panicking as soon as it starts to break up, so I have never really been close to getting out of the RC's range, but was thinking if I ever got into trouble, would I be better off in FCC mode? Thoughts?

    Oh, I guess I misunderstood the manual that it came set to CE mode. I get two beeps. Thanks!
