    Hey first off I want to introduce myself to the forum. I have been flying a toy drone for a while now and recently just purchased a Phantom 2 Vision+ and have about 3 hours flight time on it. I really enjoy it and find myself becoming more addicted. Also, I am looking for people in the Florida area to meet with and fly so let me know if anyone wants to hang out and fly. I am in Orlando Fl. So on with my concerns. I am always terrified to fly the drone past 700 ft because that's really when it starts to become small and hard to see. I can then look at my phone for bearings. Truly, what is the distance of these phantoms before I lose connection with it? I also set my compass every time i fly just in case but I do want it to get to that point. Let me know what you all think about the range of this machine.

    Per the DJI specs:

    Range Extender: 1,640-2,296 ft
    Remote Controller: 2,624 ft

    That is of course under perfect conditions with no interference.

    So its safe to say if you want to be cautious just don't take it past 1500 ft away from you.
