    Clear signal path w/o obstruction and proper antenna orientation is all that is required.

    I was at a high location overlooking the phantom 3 and with direct view over the sea so no obstacles whats so ever.
    Some interference from multiple wifi networks operating at various frequencies over there but by constantly adjusting the orientation of the antennas of the controller i was able to go so far.
    All and all very impressed with the bird!

    It's amazing how many people buy beach front property, and then build a pool in their back yard. Nice video.

    Haha very true.. Especially here in corfu where the sea is very safe and calm.... No sharks or big waves over here!
