    Hey all,

    I posted about a similar situation yesterday however I have since then realized that my problem was not weather related.

    Whenever I seem to take my drone above 250 mtrs (Altitude) while directly above me or 700 Mtrs (distance) while still maintaining line of sight I lose signal and reception.

    It takes about 15 seconds of returning to home before I regain control.

    My problem is that I have tried everything I can find online, reduced the video feed quality (or speed) to 4mbs, I've also adjusted my antenna positioning even tried going to the local sports fields to ensure there was no wifi or connection interruptions.

    This is my first drone so perhaps I'm missing something... Does anybody have any ideas?

    Thanks

    I just watched a "Best Practices" video for good signal that DJI made that states that signal will almost always be poor when flying directly above you. I can't explain why, that's just what I saw in the video.
