    Hi guys,

    I am an inexperienced flyer with the pv2+ (probably 50-75 flights), but I have had countless problems and the service/support from DJI is nothing short of shambolic...

    My latest problem is that my phantom fluctuates very quickly in finding satellites for the GPS - I can be in the middle of the desert (as open space as you can get) and I will have 9 satellites... 10 seconds later and in the same hovering position, I will have 3 satellites, gps is gone and the phantom drifts away unless I fight it.

    This process is repeated for entire flight.

    Does anyone know what the problem is?

    Many thanks,

    Sounds like the very well known flaw in the Phantom and easily fixed for most people with the foil mod.
