    I used to be able to acquire video signal until phantom was almost out of sight! Now as soon as it gets like 50 ft away Ioose feed!! All preflight done pproperly and flying in same area.

    Not really a setting within Phantom Asst for FPV feed. Within the phone APP you do have the ability to reduce the Preview rate. Most here have reduced and now have FPV range, but not to the distances as they were out of the box...

    Not knowing your location, heat appears to be an issue plaguing the P2V+ FPV feed. With the release of the P3 I'd imagine any further efforts to resolve will be minimal. So you are at the mercy for what had been done since the bird's release.

    I've done antenna mods (Stage 3 FPVLR), wifi heatsink mod, swiss cheese mod, and rebind the wifi extender to the bird. I'm back down to 15fps preview as the weather is warmer now. Some have replaced the bird's wifi module and I presume to have resolved the issue...no news is good news or people have given up!?!

    Good luck!
