    Seems that something is amiss with either my P3P or my devices. I fly either on my Galaxy Note 3 or the Shield. Recently, Ive noticed that my video stutters and freezes and unfreezes constantly. My first 5-10 flights were all butter smooth downlink and no problems with freezing or anything of the like.

    Figured I would ask the community and see if they have some ideas to try out before I start playing musical video devices !!

    ** On a brighter note, my signal dropout issue seems to have gone away nearly entirely, with the losses only cropping up while at LONNNNNNG distances. Whereas before I would start losing signal and get frequent dropouts at 400' or less

    I flew earlier today, only problem I faced was the video downlink. It froze on me a few time even being literally right behind the P3P. All these problems came once I downloaded the new update on both my P3P / RC.

    Any advise on what I should do ? :)

    Dump your cheap ANDROID! You could spend 2 grand on p3p - spend 399 for IPAD mini 3 with 16 GB and no cell. You will feel the difference instantly. No lags with my ipad.
