    Maybe I am doing something wrong. All lights on the Phantom indicate IOC is on and working. Right after I take off IOC seems to be working ok, but as the flight continues I seem to lose IOC control. I have the transmitter set to HL. It just seems to quit working completely.

    Any thoughts? Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    Correct. I am talking when it is quite far away from me. Just quits working. I have to try to determine which way it is facing to bring it back to me. When I finally get it close enough, I look at the light(s) sequence and notice I still have great GPS connection and that that the IOC is activated.

    Can't seem to figure it out. :?

    I believe I figured out the problem. Going to test it out this evening.
