    Aloha from Maui, Hawaii gang,

    This is my first post so I hope I get this right.

    I have a PV2. With about 50 flights under my belt, I'm getting a pretty good grasp of things. Recently while flying, My FPV froze up. I know I didn't lose the signal completely because I was still receiving height, distance, and direction. The last time I flew, things were just fine for the first 5-7 minutes. Max distance was around 500 feet away and height was around 60 feet. The the FPV froze. I brought it back and reacquired the FPV at right around 50 feet away. Once I'd get back to 100-120 feet away, picture would freeze up again and I'd have to come back.

    I'm ruling out any interference. I'd flown in the same place a few times and it hadn't happened before. I'm pretty far away from anything. I had also flown in an area where I was convinced there'd be interference and at 1000 feet away, I had no loss of signal.

    I'm getting ready for a trip in Sept. and am REALLY hoping to have this resolved before then. Any Ideas???

    This is a known issue if you're running iOS7 on your tablet or iPhone. Supposedly DJI is aware of the issue and a long awaited fix is in the works! From what I've seen in recent posts the android app has been resolved with the same issue.

    I had the same problem after updating to 1.1.40. It's been solid since I rolled back to 1.1.38. The higher res @ 30fps was pretty nice, but not when I couldn't get a steady feed. I've been using the 640 res @ 15fps and it works fine for my purposes.
