    Hey guys!

    Is anyone else having issues with flight distance? I just received my P2V+ yesterday and flew it but only got about 500' before losing signal. What could the problem be? Thanks.

    The vision booster App made a big difference for me... I was averaging 1500'... With the App I can get 3000' easily with the FPV... Also confirm your transmitter is in FCC mode.... (Two beeps when it is turned on)

    Do you need to make any modifications? You literally just use a different app?

    I live in a pretty residential area in the middle of the city and I can only get 1k at most before I lose signal. There are just so many trees and wireless and radio devices in my area that I'm probably even lucky to get what I do. What does your flight area look like? Are there a lot of houses or trees around?
