    I've had my P2V for about a week and it's been a blast and working flawlessly until last night. Last night I updated the camera to 1.1.8 and ever since then neither my Nexus 5 or an Iphone can maintain a consistent connection. It doesn't matter if I'm 5 feet away from the Phantom or in a field with no other detectable Wifi networks. I've tried rebinding the camera and checking connections, and the repeater is fully charged. Any other suggestions? Is there a way to revert back to the previous camera firmware?

    No crashes so far, only very gentle landings, so nothing should be jarred loose.

    Thanks!

    This has been covered many times. Return to the Phantom Vision index and enter "Nexus WiFi" in the Search box on the left. You'll find your answer in the results.

    Thanks, idrone. If you're referring to these threads:

    No luck with any of those solutions. (Airplane mode + wifi on/avoid poor connections setting off/ran Wifi analyzer, no conflicting networks in area.)

    Interestingly enough, when I download 2 1GB video's from the P2V, it copies to my phone fine with no apparent drops. It's just the live feed that drops. (Telemetry stays active 50% of the time the cam feed drops out)

    I'll hit up my dealer in the morning to see if they have a solution/repair option.
