    I've been taking my Phantom Quadcopter out for a few test runs and notice that I lose signal maybe at ~50 feet...? Any idea why this might be? It is a cloudy day and am hoping that it's because of that.

    50 feet? You should never lose signal at that distance. Does it go into failsafe and return?

    That's exactly what happens.

    Which version of Phantom?

    Are you using WiFi on your gopro while flying?

    Previously, but that wasn't the case on the most recent flight.

    What are typically some factors that play into a situation like this?

    I know there is a setting you can change in the NAZA assistant software that sets limits on how far you can fly before failsafe hits. I think it is set to 2000 meters by default.You can change it to anything you like. You might want to check that out and see if it somehow got changed to 50 feet.
