I have a Phantom 3 standard that flies perfect....except it losses signal at around 350 feet out and returns home. Is this something I can fix ? Thanks
I did buy it used. The previous owner told me about the signal issue before I bought it. its my first DJI and have been learning the basic's with it, its great for flying within the 350 ft range. thought if I could get it fixed I would. I do not see any signs of a crash, no scuff marks or cracks. Also it looses signal at 350-375 ft even at different flying locations. I am also using the antenna booster ( gold force shield looking thing) and am trying to keep antenna pointed towards AC. I would assume it is out of warranty....As mentioned earlier, some additional history would be helpful. Did you buy it used? Any chance it's been crashed? Could be you have a loose antenna either in the AC or RC.
I had the exact same issue. Turns out it was my main board. DJI repaired it under warranty.
I can usually get out to almost 300m with my reflector on. I have been meaning to try to see if I can get out to the 500m mark again in the same area I got it before. I always keep my firmware updated so I can’t pinpoint when the range may have decreased. Never has been much of a concern as I have always flown within VLOS.
Not sure how to see remote controll signals. I did walk out 215 feet from AC and nothing on the app changed. Here is what im seeing on the appSet your Phantom on an object like 200 ft away, etc. So it not setting on the ground, no need to fly it, just have it powered on. Then watch your remote control signals, are the consistent or are they bouncing all over?
Note: Do this on a new power up, or pull the props.
Reason, If you have flown your Phantom and landed but the props are still powered on. It has been said that if it looses signal from the remote, it wil actually take back off in flight to return to home.
Ok, had 5 bars the whole time@Planetime2,
Its the picture of your remote control.
