    Not far compared to some of you, but I was thrilled! Got a weak video warning at 7000ft, turned it around backwards and flew a little further. I believe it would have gone much further, but I chickened out. Stock P3P. Going for 8K next outing.

    You've only scratched the surface! Keep going! :cool:
    Keep those antennas pointing perfectly perpendicular to the ground and add a little more altitude if your video gets weak (you might need to increase the max altitude first) and push through, rather than pulling back. I often find that just a slight reorientation of the way I am holding the transmitter restores full signal strength, while hovering in the place it got weak. Watch the antenna bars of signal strength at the very top, next to the radio transmitter and HD icons. They will tell you most of what you need to know to keep going. Good luck!
