    Well, exactly what are your questions? There are many P3S owners here.

    I have had several successful flights with my phantom after I got it at Christmas time. I updated the firmware as instructed. No issues at all until yesterday when the RC link would drop out at a range of about 30 metres.

    I tried re pairing the controller and tried several different devices one iOS and 2x android in case there was a problem.

    The antenna was pointing the right direction. Like I say seems very strange as it was working totally fine and now the range is terrible. There have been no further firmware updates since the initial one in December.

    The phantom always tried to RTH after the signal is lost from the controller.

    If this is in the wrong section I will gladly move it.

    It sounds fine. The thing is still well in warranty so I will take it back to the place I got it.

    Or hopefully not in beginners mode. As 30m is the limit.

    Cheers Guys
    Not in beginners mode. Going to return it when I get back so they can have a look to see what is wrong.
