    While sitting on the ground, what's the typical distance from drone to controller that the WiFi signal starts losing bars and disconnects? Mine seems to happen at about 100'.
    Is this indicative of a failing wifi module or does distance increase when the motors are going?

    Distance should be much further then 100 feet. I easily get 1200.

    More important maybe is what is distance you get IN THE AIR WITH CLEAR LOS?

    If I had to guess, I get about 50 feet max with p2v+ on the ground and 1000+ ft LOS in the air.... more if turn on boost

    P2V+ Version 3: I put it up 400 ft. and fly it away 3,000 ft. regularly - never lose FPV.
