    Hi there

    Been having this problem for a while now can someone advise me what to check. I am using P3P v1.6.0040 with latest DJI GO on ipad mini 2. I frequently lose my video even when at a few metres from drone. it will be good for 3 mins. no video for 1 min, and repeat. as in title full 5 bars on controller and video signal but just no video.

    hi all. found the root of my problems. i disconnected the gimbal from the bird. and found the cable badly pinched between the gimbal mounting plate and the phantom body. i've had the bird for 6months and the video cuts in and out. always thought it was a distance issue but its gotten worse. that explains why!
