    I was depending on my FPV screen to bring my P2V close to a subject. Because of the sun, I didn't notice that the screen froze and I moved in a little closer. BAM. A palm tree did a Smackdown on my p2V and it fell into the middle of the street in 3 pieces...body, battery and camera. Fortunately, I was able to fit it all back together and it is working perfectly. So just a warning...keep a good line-of-sight and don't overly depend on the iPhone view. I am impressed with the Phantom's construction...that was a hard fall.

    I had the same issue when using it with my Android (Sony XperiaZ). I hadn't lost the connection as all the onscreen data was still updating. I was in a large park, with no obstructions but because it was in the sun, I couldn't see it (appx 300ft away) so I switched off the transmitter and it flew back to me.

    Does exactly what is says on the tin. I love it!

    Of course, I now know about the Switch2 settings, but it worked.
