    Make sure antennas are up and facing aircraft, not straight out from rc but the little holes on antennae pointing right at the phantom, i found my signal is bad at times until the phantom starts flying then gets better it seems. It's just video that is bad, you should still have total control of aircraft to fly and land. Try different areas. You could try changing channels manually in the HD section in the menu too.

    Your problem is similar to the issue that DJI Go iOS 2.8.2 created.. But since you're running 2.8.3, it should have gone away.

    You may have interference problems. In the HD option, in the Image Transmission Settings, change your Channel Mode from Auto to Custom. Lock it on a single channel. Look for one that isn't displaying a red bar. (I use 20). If that improves things, then you might have a strong local interference.

    FWIW, The antennas should be oriented broadside to the phantom.

    So many thanks for your feedback.
    2 news :
    I test different position and....make it better
    but about "You could try changing channels manually in the HD section in the menu too"
    in android version, the channel could be changed. In iOS version, the "manual" option is in grey....have you any idea ?

    Last question : Can my tablet be more powerfull than my ipad mini v1, which can explain the video signal not good ?
