    I went to fly and test my P4 got about 18 satellites, picked it up and the gps single dropped out, set it back down and 18 came up again. Tried it several times and the same thing the satelites would drop out, Then I found that I actually don't have to pick it up but just put my hand over it and they would drop out. Never noticed anything like that on my PH3s or Inspire 1. Is this something normal or should I have went to church instead of playing with my PH4.

    This happens on my Phantom 3s too. The GPS receiver is in the top, center of the shell.

    Thank you I guess I just never noticed or it could be I was carrying the PH4 around and watching the display and trying to get an idea how good the CA works.
