    I can fly with my bird at the day time anywhere. But I tried 2 times at night after 50 metres remote controller weak signal error comes.

    What is this i didnt understand? I saw many video about night fly videos. But we cant fly at night :S

    Do you think P4 doesnt get signal because of the dark ?

    Thanks

    Could there be some kind of interfering EMF that's on at night but not on during the day?

    like others have said, maybe EMF. As stupid as it might sound, maybe atmospheric conditions have an effect with the signal, especially on extended distances. I'm into amateur radio also, and incidences of higher solar storms (which produce northern lights) might have an effect of the signal, as the atmosphere at the atomic level could cause issues with a signal, like HF amateur signals.

    To check this out, you can go to www.spaceweather.com and it shows at a glance the current space weather conditions, which you maybe able to cross reference if you get connection issues.

    Just an idea.

    I fly at night all the time and get the same distance as I do during the day. Actually I tend to fly further at night.
