    have had my P3 for a few days. flying around the neighborhood to get a feel for it.
    first few flights, great, fly's easy. Took it up to 120 feet and took some video, love this thing.
    Today I decide to fly up to 300 feet. nice video of area and I stay close to home. Then I get a week signal message, panic sets in. I start to descend then signal lost, now no video and a message pops up saying do you want to RTH, YES!
    a few seconds later signal returns, I cancel RTH and land. oh crap so this is how it feels.

    Another thing, I thought when you lost signal it would RTH with no input, why did I get a popup asking to RTH?
