    When drone is 200 feet away, I loose camera signal. Is camera feed coming from drone or controller? Galaxy s 5 is mounted on RC. You should be able to see what the drone is seeing half mile away shouldn't you? All firmware is updated. Please help

    Are you losing RC signal or are you losing wifi (Low image transmission)?
    Half Mile range is under optimal conditions with little to no interference.
    Are you in beginner mode?
    Also, are you pointing the antenna correctly?

    I think it's wifi I'm loosing. The drone flys fine at any distance but I loose my picture and info distance. On start ups I have to start everything a couple of times to get a picture, then fly it and a few hundred feet away the camera goes down and says lost signal so I fly it back and start over. I think it's a remote controller issue. Beginner mode is off and the antenna is correct. I'm lost.
