    Hi just a quick question,

    I have tried flying a couple of times without the USB cable connecting my device to the controller. I've notice that i tend to have signal problems since i stopped using it.

    Is it recommended to always have your device connected to the controller via the micro USB when flying?

    Thanks,
    TJ

    The P3S/P34K connects via Wi-Fi, so there is not need to use a cable.
