    Watch for 24 seconds in. Scary and surreal experience in a routine flight. Fingers crossed, it's only happened the once and after power cycling it was gone. Don't know if it's related to 'Vision + Booster 2.0' or not but has this ever happened to anyone else?

    Close & restart the app. That's what I do when this happens.

    Yes, this happened once, closed & restarted the app and all was back fine for a good flight.

    The bird was on the ground, waiting for sats since +/- 10 minutes (in the hot sun) and it may have overheated (not sure). I'd rather not have this happening in flight... :eek:

    That is common but only when you're too close to the mother ship when crop circles are being created. Even though there have been no reported cases of fowl play, you still may want to fly with caution.

    How did you record the actual app info.? For instance the distance and altitude.

    It happens to me all the time. I either change the Preview Quality or close the app and re-start it.
