    After the last upgrades to Dji go and drone I'm getting a warning tag coming on the screen about strong magnetic interference . Thought it might be something new in the area so tried another location over water and got the same warning .Flown in both places before with no problems anyone else experiencing this alert? Any ideas ?steve

    I've had that before, but changing locations and I don't have that message. Most be something causing the reaction.i think the new update is more sensitive

    I wish they would say what they consider "long distances."

    The strong interference warning is an iOS problem,android won't show that warning in the same location.if your getting a magnetic interference warning it will be at the top of the screen and be red where it show in flight gps

    Yes I understand but when I fly about 50m-60m away it states "signal lost", "rc disconnected" then return to home is initiated.

    It does return home but I can't get out pass 60m before signal is lost. All the bars are on tablet when I take off but disappear quickly
