    Hi

    DJI says, max control range in FCC mode is 500 meters. Can you say, what is the range in practice?
    Is it over or under 500 meters?

    I don't think you can see it at that distance, less navigate it.

    Some report ranges up to 4 - 5000 feet in the vision threads, which is the same as us.

    So, if you have proper FPV on your FC40 Phantom, You can fly it in 1200-1500 meter range!
