    Hi,

    I tested recently my phantom for distance.
    But I only get 70meters in height and 50 meters in distance , so this iw aprox. 85 meters in total.
    I get a disconnect from wifi and control. is this normal?
    I thought the specs stated 400meters

    Lars

    Keep trying. It will go a lot further than that.
    Keep the side of your antenna pointing at the bird - not the tip.

    Is the range extender turned on? I have seen 1200m on a standard V+!
