    I live in North Florida... some days, like right now... you could cut the air with a knife it's so humid.

    I just attempted to fly further then I have flown before... but I only get about 1000 feet away with FPV. I still have control of the Phantom beyond that, but it starts to become hard to see so I don't want to go too much further.

    In addition, when I walk outside (from my air conditioned house), condensation instantly shows up on the camera lens, the metal surfaces of the motor, even the shell, etc.

    Do you think the little bit of moisture associated with the condensation are doing any real harm to the components of the P2V+?

    I read tons of people that are getting 2500 feet and beyond with FPV unmodified. Could the humidity be effecting the radio signal?

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    I wouldnt think that would cause any issues...I do know that humidity does cause us to get shorter distances.
