    Are you running a custom channel at 4mbps bit rate? Are you flying in a high RF noise area ? I assume you had the antennas pointed up and kept them parallel to the legs of the craft, correct?

    Auto setting.. Everything stock since this it's still new. Flew over water... No interferences that I know of.. Used to get over 10k' with my p3a with no signal loss... Really strange

    Strange , your using android .. But app version 2.8.1 was crap on iOS , so maybe the same here.. My p4 range was shot to hell.

    Now the iOS app is updated to 2.8.3 all issues and been sorted .. I've been seeing repeated range test of over 4500m

    Yours actually double mines. I get like 4-5000ft out and it starts to lose signal.

    I get the same or less with my P3P. I also live in a heavily forested area.

    Location Location Location, I have more range than the battery can bring me back. If I fly toward my home town just over a mile away and as soon as I get between 2 cell towers I lose signal. Out in the country no problems.
