    It seems like every flight I do, I get a warning message about strong interference. I don't understand why or what to do about it. I have not had any trouble with continuing flying after the warning, but it's annoying and makes me worry a bit. Any ideas?

    I had this also on my second flight. It could be metal objects near to where you are flying... Not sure though, I had low battery right after this warning.

    I think I had that warning when I took off from a parking garage, due to all the steel interfering with the compass reading.

    Hmm, weird. As you can see by my flight screenshot, I was at 400 ft and above my house which is surrounded by trees. Not much metal to interfere I would guess? It happens at random times it seems

    I had this warning today for the first time. I usually fly in the country but today I went downtown and flew around our local baseball stadium. I'm guessing the warning was due to numerous WiFi signals near by and several other cell/radio towers in the area.

    I chalk it up to radio interference. WiFi signals, power lines, cell towers, you name it. I get this message too depending on where I am, in my subdivision, definitely, out in the country, not so much (unless there are power lines nearby.)
