    Hi guys, hope you're well

    Im a fairly new owner of a DJI phantom 3 4K which operates over wifi and I have already gained increasingly sick of the distance this will travel too or should I say lack of

    Flew it today over a field and it didn't even go very high and it constantly kept saying "no signal" and losing connection via the camera on the screen. So I had the drone floating in the air and the screen claiming there was no connection with the aircraft

    Scales were calibrated and latest update was installed a week ago.

    Any ideas as to what might be the issue? Regret being a tight and getting this now!!! Should have bitten the bullet and got a professional instead

    I have uploaded an example of the distance travelled with constant loss of signal warnings please advise. If you cannot view via the link pop over to my Instagram @absaryounis thanks

    check the 8 pin connector cable on the gimbal, I had similar problem on my Pro and one of the 8 pins had worked its way out of the connector a tiny bit

    RE-Bind the controller to the phantom.

    Your loss of signal could be caused by interference, try flying the bird in a different area away from buildings, electricity wires etc..good luck!
