    I nearly lost my P3S few minutes ago as the transmission got disconnected. I can't hear her and i'm trying to redirect the antenna hoping i can re-establish the link. I was about to freak out and suddenly remember to toggle the switch(Upper left) up and down to bring her home. I was relieve to see her flying back to home location.:tearsofjoy:

    How do you tell if your Phantom is a "he" or a "she"?

    Well. I'm a guy. If im going to say my drone is a "male/he" it would be weird. Like if you are a guy and you named your car with a "male" that sounds like you are attached to a guy.LOL:laughing:

    Nice to know RTH worked. I have done it from several hundred ft away with no issues. My biggest issue is how do I override RTH in Litchi App? But yeah, took mine out to 1,325 ft yesterday, my longest yet. No issues but man, that is a creepy feeling when you no longer have visual on it!

    I think the yuneec drone is a heshe so can pick any name for that one/ unless you get a plexidrone then you don't have to worry what to name it cause you will never get it

    My wife came up with Lucy for my drones name. Eventually I'm gonna get some diamond stickers for her. Then she'll be "Lucy in the sky with diamonds," lmao!

    Looks like you crashed it in a paint store. You go out in public with that? You fly at night, correct?
