The Phantom 2 Vision+ had decent range. How come the P3 Standard doesn't have similar range?
The P3 Standard range is greater. Check out the P2V+ specs here.
The Vision+ range was listed as 800m compared to the Standard rating of 1000m.
My P3S replacement seams to better than my lost P2V+, My P3S had a distance problem shortly after firmware update, that's why I said replacement.
OP - are you in the US or UK? If the latter, you can't use FCC mode on the P3 as it's done on location - there's no way to override it.

Both use wifi tech.
P3S is 720 @ 30fps = bigger bucket
P2V+ is 480p @ 30fps = smaller bucket (you can drop this to lower res and lower fps to get more distance).
higher rate data means less distance.
lower rate of data means more distance.
Its quicker to fill (compile) a 480p bucket (frame) then it is to fill a 720p bucket.
Think of watching youtube. The higher resolution videos take longer to buffer.
Another thing they can do is improve compression by using a different video codec. This will lower the bandwidth. Think of H.264 vs H265 video.
I thought the question was based on remote control distance not quality and or distance of video image? Please correct me if I am wrong.
