    Just flew my new P4 for the first time yesterday. Few issues I'm dealing with...

    1. The right stick isn't working in 3 out of the 4 directions

    2.. Lose video and signal 40mfeet over my head

    3. Radio channel quality always says "poor"

    4. Gimbal calibration fails on the first try. Always have to domin a second time for it to succeed.

    Seems like a faulty unit to me... exchange/return to retailer or DJI, dpending on where you purchased it.

    Before you return it consider....
    Maybe calibrate the remote sticks? Unless there is obvious physical issues.
    Manually elect cleanest channel? You may just be in a bad area.

    Even if not ft and it's 40m overhead and loses signal your either in a really bad Wifi 2.4G noise area, like the worst I've heard of, or the other post is correct, sounds like a unit with a smoked internal booster amp in the RC
