Hello All,

I have a Phantom 3 standard that loses signal at maybe 200-300 meters away. It doesn't seem to affect the vertical height just horizontal. Not sure if this is an issue with my area or the quad. Maybe I just have a lot of interference in my area. The quad seems to work fine line of sight. It does take a minute or so to connect to the controller and then to satellites once powered on. Not sure if this is normal. I have had a few other drones (toy and hobby grade) that did not take as long to connect but they did not have all the electronics the phantom has. So is there a way to extend the signal from the Tx?

Antenna is pointed towards the drone. I have tried adjusting it but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

towards the drone is a big mistake. it should be up with the side of the antenna facing the drone.
