Was flying around by house near my field. No different than any other practice run. I have flown in same exact area at least 20 times already. The bird was no more than 100ft above me. Maybe 20 meters away and I was starting to fly out like any other time I have done same spot. All of a sudden video signal was very choppy. I decided to fly it closer to me. Completely lost video signal. Read no signal on pilot app. About 5-10 seconds it came back on. I brought it down closer let hover for a moment. Stopped recording press record again and everything seemed fine. Went out again 100' up maybe 30 meters out. Video became choppy again and lost signal. I seemed to have control of the bird with r/c still so I flew it close to me again. Not too much of a big deal. But, why no signal at such a close range and no interferance. Atennas pointed like there suppose to in same direction I have every other time and no problem. Would kind of scare me at further distances when I can't see the bird and bothers me for being so close with no signal. Running latest firmware. 1.1.9 and latest pilot app for android. Samsung s5.
