    First flight (3rd copter) all things were good full bars across the board all things were good and running fine. Took it up to 350 feet and video was going in and out the whole ride up and down. P3P was about 25 feet in front of me and antennas were in right position. Anyone with some perspective?

    Device? Channel signal interference? How many open channels? Do you have the 32 channel hack?

    Search 32 channel hack on the forum and there are several you tube videos. You basically replace the config file in the DJI app and you will have 32 channels available for frequencies.

    Which part of the antenna was pointing toward your Phantom?

    Sounds to me like the antenna were not properly positioned for the Phantom being overhead. They should be parallel to the ground if the Phantom is directly overhead. Is that how you had them?

    Which means what? Your descriptions are quite vague :confused:

    The standard recommended position is when the flat side of the antenna points directly at your Phantom.

    You don't need to keep adjusting your antenna when you fly it vertically above you. You can just tilt your R/C too so the antenna is perpendicular to the quad.

    And, pay attention so your mobile device doesn't jump out of the mount ;)
