Hello all. First let me introduce myself as a newbie here. My name is Steve. I perform property surveys, which is why I purchased the Phantom Vision+. Yesterday was my first test flight at a high school parking lot, and everything went fine until I noticed I kept losing connection at around 500 feet. Everything was charged, 6 satellites, was gps calibrated, was in line of sight, installed and used the DJI Booster App, and even velcroed a USB power pack to the back of the remote to keep continual power feed to the Iphone and range extender, and yet it would lose connection at 500 feet with no obstructions. So, I quit and brought it home disappointed. Then, today I had a property to inspect and survey, so I thought I would take some aerial photos for the report. The picture attached is the last aerial of my phantom before it lost connection, went haywire, and got lost in the woods on the opposite side of the river where I was on the shore. At this point in the sky it was around 540 feet distance and completely in line of sight. If you look closely at the shore, you can zoom and see a blue barrel and then me just to the left of it. There's a silver suburban about 50 feet up and right from where I'm standing. Anyhow, as soon as I saw it fall from the sky, I took my shirt off, was wearing shorts, and went into the river across it and up a 20 foot cliff on the other side. As soon as I saw what was on the other side, my heart sank as all I saw was a jungle of trees and 8 ft tall thorny weeds everywhere. I couldn't see anything, but I could hear the phantom's motors going full speed far away. I should have kept my shirt on, as I was stung several times by wasps and other bugs as well as scrapes from thorny branches. When I finally found it about 60 yards deep, it was going full speed except for two rotors stuck in brush, and it wanted to return home. I almost panicked because I got lost in all that brush and the sun was at 12 high, so I couldn't get my bearings and the bugs kept stinging me in the humid heat. I finally calmed down and found they way I came in from the bent vegetation. So, now I'm home and really pissed off and body sore from what just happened. I want to assume I have been missing something very simple. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Also, another reason I purchased this model is because I read somewhere that Waypoint works well with this unit, yet now I can't find any videos of anyone using Waypoint with Vision+. I appreciate for your feedback.
