    Hi I updated my phantom 4. I was flying or and every now and then I get lines through the screen and coloured lines and the picture distorts as if it was going out of signal. Any ideas

    It is usually the sensor getting overwhelmed by drastic light changes. Flying into the sun, flying at night near bright lights, etc. Isn't related to the signal. It's the camera itself. If it happens under normal lighting conditions, it's likely a faulty camera sensor and should be sent in for repair. Unless, of course, the lines don't show up on your SD card footage in which case: disregard everything I just said.
