    Hi

    I am having a problem staying connected to the camera with the dj vision App. At about 50 feet distance i lose connection.

    I have tried binding and it seems to work then loses connection. I must be missing something. I am using a samsung s2 on Android version 4.1.2. Any help or ideas appreciated .

    Iorwerth.

    I've got the same problem but it often happens at very low range, 20 - 30 feet. I'm using the LG G2 smartphone so it's also android.

    Anyone experience this with iPhone or iPad?

    When this happens, look at the Wi-Fi Network you are connected to. Does it say Phantom xxxxxx? If it says some other network, you need to set you phone to NOT auto-connect to Wi-Fi networks. See if that helps.

    It has been doing this right out of the box. Looks like its going to work then it the screen freezes and goes black and white. I tried binding it several times. I can still start and stop filming. Adjust camera tilt and controls but cant see what I am filming. I think its a bug in the app. Im using a iphone 4s
