    i just bought a used dji phantom 2, with a complete fpv setup and a h3-2d gimbal. i can only fly about 50 meter away before the controller signal is lost. the video stream to the monitor is still working well. i enjoy flying it allot and i fly it all the time but it kinda kills the mood when i cant fly beyond 50 meter away from me. is there somthing i can do to fix this?

    Welcome to the Forum :)
    How are you aiming your controller antenna ?
    It should be at an angle and not pointing straight at the bird .

    Have you checked in assistant what your distance is set at ?
    At 50 meters does it go into rth or just stop ?

    What FPV are you using? If it's transmitting in the same frequency as the controller? If so it could be interfering with your controller signal.

    Have either of you done a complete calibration of both the RC controller and P2 including a complete advanced IMU?
