    I have a DJI phantom 3 standard and i keep on losing video connection and the connection to my controller which leads to return to home. It is not flying to far away from me and even when it is right above me i almost lose connection. Mostly what i have is weak connection and eventually disconnect. If it helps i have a samsung galaxy tab s2

    Right above you is not the best position to fly since the signal is weakest at that point. It'll be even weaker if the front of the remote controller is not pointing directly at your Phantom (since there are antennas in both corners) and/or the antenna is not positioned properly (flat side pointing at your Phantom).

    See the following video for more details on how to position the remote controller antenna properly:
