    I have a verizon tablet I am using with my phantom advanced and if I fly out toward my limits for distance my screen starts to fade to grey and then the tablet shuts off. Then I have to turn it back on and open up the dji go and regain control once I have hit the go home button and it has a stronger signal. Is this normal?
    Can I do anything to stop this from happening?
