    Got new standard put updated firmware and latest app. At first all was good. Now I can only go out bout 200 yards before it comes home. I looked at all the settings changed a few and nothing works. Any suggestions ??

    Even if you have beginner's mode turned off, there's another setting called maximum distance which could be set, did you check that?

    What error or other messages do you get prior to it returning home?

    It says loss signal with remote. I haven't tried it yet but in front of remote it says "antenna inside do not cover" u thing the arm for my iPhone was in front of it. So I move it some so the arm is not in the the we try that as soon I can. Hope that works.

    If your talking about the small arm that comes with the controller that holds the phone? That's not going to help or hurt too much.
