    Hi guys

    I haven't reached 328 feet yet (which is max fly height i Denmark).
    When I reach about 80m I Ioose connection.

    How does the height limiter work? (i hope not by dropping signal :cry: )

    Do I have antenna problem? (i has to point direct upwards at the bird - right?)
    How can I optimize the connection?

    Best regards
    Jesper

    The receiver antenna should NOT be pointed at the aircraft. The Phantom should be seeing the LONG SIDE of the antenna, NOT the tip. The Range Extender forward (or top) should be directed towards the aircraft. I know you are in Denmark, but what's to prevent you from enabling FCC mode output power and increasing your range?

    What is FCC?
    A setting under the hood?
