    I have the P3S and I wanted to get some feedback on why I am constantly losing the GPS signal. I have always noticed that even before I launch (and from different locations) that it is going between P-GPS and no GPS and ATTI. I was reviewing my logs yesterday to try and battle the RC loss of signal problem that is plaguing these things, and I came across the GPS issue. I keep losing the signal, then it won't return home telling me that I need to have the controller in F mode, guessing due to the GPS issue?

    Oddly enough, there have been several times where I got a loss of RC signal message and it returned to home, yet the log shows it as a GPS loss vs signal loss. Thoughts?

    Here is a quick copy and paste. This was in the middle of a field and it did it the entire time. Compass was calibrated prior to flight. All of my logs look like this pretty much.
