    Hello everyone...

    ...Just thought I would say "Hi" after finding this site by accident on a Google search - I was looking up reviews for the Phantom 3 4K.

    I have since bought a Phantom 3 4K and done 12 flights with it, and so far so happy (despite it's awful video feed range - barely 25-30 meters).

    I'm not new to RC flying, but this is my first quad with a camera. Hopefully I can gather enough info from this site to figure out the WIFI range problem, some very knowledgeable people seem to be lurking on here!

    Welcome!

    I have a 4K as well and get video much further than that - well over 200m away. Perhaps you have some interference issue or a faulty unit?

    Lurk...they live here geek, Welcome to the forum .
    After reading a little in the Standard section start a thread on your distance issue as you
    do have one . If it's not a noise or aiming issue than we can figure it out .

    Welcome and yes you should be getting well over 25 meters of video feed. Are you flying the Phantom 3 Standard?
