    Hi guys today I flew my pv2 . It was in a wide open area and I had 10 sats and flew without problems. I then lowered my altitude and she flew lower than where I was standing as I was on a hill. I then started to lose contact and it eventually landed in a field not to far from me maybe 70 meters away . So I guess the signal doesn't like to go below the remote? Is this normal ? Cheers Dave.

    No, your vision should fly fine above or below the remote or home point. However if you flew into a valley and then lost GPS and also the control signal, the craft will land.

    Thanks for that I relized later when I got home and turned pv2 on again to download photos that the range extender had run out of power and needed charging , so that must have been my problem. Cheers Dave
