    I was flying my p3 pro in the desert & dubai, in some place where theres only 1 tower higher than 100 meter in the middle of desert belongs to the patrol offices watever its called ,
    I fly between 30 meters H and far from me not more than 50 meters, after the drone goes behind the tower i received directly a RC weak signal ?!!!!
    Is that normal when theres some bloks between the rc and the drone to had that issues ?!?!?

    Hmm. Yes. That's normal. You have a giant building between you and your bird.

    Called signal attenuation, the power (energy) of the signal is absorbed by the structure.
