    The live downlink from my P3S is very poor. It has a low FPS rate, it has a very high latency and the screen will glitch out occasionally. The live telemetry data is fine, the video is terrible. Also, the range is good, at 4200'+ I can still receive it, but the quality is just terrible. Anything I can do?

    • Are all the devices and apps updated?
    • Are you in a area with interference?
    • Is the device you using powerful enough to use the app?
    • Have you got sufficient free space on the device? Including enough free RAM and cache space?
    • Have you tried manual channel switching for Wi-Fi?
    • Tried the FCC mod?
    • Tried using another App?
    And just to check, you're not covering the Wi-Fi antennas with your fingers? :p

    Lower the received video settings, you maybe have it set too high for your device to cope with.

    Post a screen record of the live feed and perhaps people will be better placed to offer an opinion. Knowing what display device you are running would also prove useful.
