    Searched the forum to see what was solution. As always fantastic advice and insights into the problems we face as "alpha testers".
    P3P
    App 2.8.1
    Firmware 1.9.6
    RC 1.60
    Samsung Evo 64gb Micro SD
    For the last 2 months I have had the above issue, which comes and goes, i.e. safe to fly GPS for 2-3 minutes then no signal for about 15-20 seconds, safe to fly GPS another 2 minutes then no signal another 15 seconds.
    then I can get 5-8 minutes flying with no problems.
    Related or not I'm not sure but, on start up, switching battery on, the camera would do its "lets get rid of the stiff neck" dance and after it had settled 5 seconds later would do a little tourettes(?) syndrome jerk, and 5 seconds later collapse like the proverbial limp dxxk, and of course no signal would be displayed.
    Anyway long story short, I decided to make sure all the gimbal cables were firmly seated just by applying a little pressure. No more limp camera and no signal loss.
    I am pretty sure it is a problem I create when trying to remove the gimbal stabiliser that I use for storing/transporting.
    See below the PHOSMO
