    Hello!

    Was out flying this morning, and for the second time now, the video feed drops or goes really pixelated, and seems to take a while to reboot/catchup. The app never closes....

    I'm using a Phantom 3 Standard
    iPhone 6S - aeroplane mode enabled, (and disabled to see if that made a difference) all other apps closed & loads of memory.
    Pretty sure the latest firmware too...but not sure how to check.

    Any ideas would be great.

    Thanks so much

    Alex

    Also, the drone was anywhere between 20ft and 500ft away during the times of it happening. Only about 40 ft off the ground, if that, on a very clear beautiful day!

    Thanks msinger. I had the video cache enabled.....do you think that would have caused it?

    It's possible.
