Here's the issue i'm having with the Phantom 4:
.
.
3rd of April 2017 - I'm out on a remote island shooting...
.
I was halfway around the island when my feed went blank... Praise the Almighty, the RTH worked and a thousand intense heart beats later, the drone was back in sight...
.
However the feed would become intermittent... and when visuals were lost in the app, the recording would stop too on the memory card...
.
It's good to note that this drone has never crashed. Plus it was always hand caught...
.
Unfortunately I bought it while I was away on a trip to Reunion Island... I got in touch with the shop there, but they told me I should have someone bring it in... and that i can't send it to them by post.
.
So I'm sort of stuck with a non working drone...
.
Do you guys think I should just order that $39 flex cable and change it myself? (done that several times with some P3Pros... but never tried on the P4.
.
Any thoughts? Anybody had that issue before?
.
In any case I asked a pal to get me the Phantom 4 Pro from abroad... can't wait any longer... Getting it on Monday - Yay.
.
Plus the Phantom 4 Advanced has just been announced so I don't suppose a better drone than the Phantom 4 is gonna come out soon...
.
Thanks,
.
