Been using my P3 for 2 days now and when the app shows i'm about 1000 feet away I get a weak signal alert. Is this normal?

It should be capable of significantly more than that.
Check the angles of the antennas to see if you can improve things.

If its anything like my P2 the fpv can drop out very quickly if there is lots of wifi signals around.
I have one spot where I can get 400m or so but only if i drop resolution. Other places is a lot (lot ) better

Close call! :) yeah he should have manually flew back for a faster return.

3.2 miles is amazing without any additional antennas!

Still getting a weak radio signal warning message, I got to about 3000 feet away this time. My antennas are in the correct position. Now this is making me nervous since a few reported fly aways.

Are you flying in a neighborhood and or city? WiFi signals from home networks will reduce the range. If you go out to a low populated area with less WiFi signals you should see 1.2 mile range.

I flew at the beach and only got about 1500 feet away and the warning came up again.
