I was gonna push my P3A out to 3 miles this evening but was flying to slow I guess because of weak signal strength and losing video occasionally. Got the RTH signal at 55% battery remaining since I was 2.6 miles out. My ? Is could I have pushed on at full speed to the 3 mile mark instead of hovering several times on the way out to regain video and signal strength or was I correct to take my time getting out to the 2.7 range and having to RTH? I landed with 18% battery left. I was hesitant to push it full throttle once I was loosing signal and video at about the 2 mile mark. I wanted to push on to 3 miles but got a little nervous. Clear skies and calm winds headed out and back. What would you veterans have done?
