I'm wondering what you guys do when you lost signal, and the screen goes dark?

Had that happen to me today as I try to test the limits. I kind of panicked when the screen turned black and white.. And hit return to home until I got the feed back. But that was unnerving.

What do you guys do? And is the a way to push the phantom after losing signal to get the extra distance? I tried playing with antenna positions to no avail.

Depends on the situation. If I'm flying for range I just keep the throttle all the way forward and see if it comes back.

If I'm zipping around at lower altitudes and lose signal, I hit RTH immediately so I gain altitude and don't unknowingly fly into anything low.
