Hello, anybody here with experience on this issue?

After a few short testflights the P4 suddenly dropped from 1,2 mtr..to the ground, nothing got damaged..
It just stopped hovering and dropped, display error: Image transmission signal weak

Overall status was good, calibration done, batteries full, 20 satt, good signal strenght, somewhere in the middle of nowhere

Tried a few more take-offs, but each time after +/-2 min the P4 dropped too the ground hovering 10 cm above the ground, same display error, after +/-2 min it reconnects again..

Checked the flightlogs but didn't see some strange errors...

Anybody?

Try uploading your TXT flight log here. It might reveal what happened.

I kept getting a weak signal on my controller, had two lights lite on controller. I thought that should be enough. I hooked up my charger and it cleared up and continued flying. Don't trust the lights on your controller.

Didn't see any errors/warnings on flightlogs what could be the reason for suddenly no power and dropping down
Got a link to your flight log?
