    New Phantom owner here. As soon as I received my Phantom 3 Standard I carefully read everything and took it up for it's first flight after careful preparations. The flight was a huge success, took amazing photos and achieved decent range, about 600m away while at 120m altitude.

    The second flight was the same, however over night after a full recharge and set to go I could barely get past 10m height without the Return to Home function kicking in. Max distance I could get was about 30m away before once again the RC would beep and force return home. I thought this was going to be a 'one off' but unfortunatley it wasn't, it has occurred in my past three flights.

    And next day I was able to fly 100m and then the return function kicked in. And on the second flight, same day, I barely reach 50m and then i got RC-Signal low. But just when my aircraft was going to return home the signal returned back and I was able to fly 30m more before the RC-signal were lost. So my RC-signal is really unstable.

    I'm flying in Sweden.

    What troubleshooting options can I do, or is there a problem with my hardware?
