Good morning, first time poster, long time reader. I have a P4P V2, and was just off the coast of NJ about 2 miles out in the Atlantic filming for a boat owner. The first time I went to deploy, I got a warning that the downward facing avoidance was not working and gave directions for calibration in which I had to hold the drone and go in a square pattern, in one direction, to calibrate it. It never worked. Took off any way. Everything worked fine, until, it seemed, that about half the battery was gone then I lost my right control. Luckily, with only 120 seconds left on the battery, we brought it in. This scenario happened two other times. Luckily, got the job done and came home with all equipment. Sitting here now, figured I’d look into the problem, but everything is normal now. What caused the issues I had out in the ocean? The only thing I could possibly think is that the GPS from the boat was causing some kind of interference. I even had everyone else on the boat turn off their phones, but that did not seem to help either. Any thoughts? Thanks, in advance.
