    The connection seems intermittent. Makes video a bit frustrating. Any ideas?

    The WiFi connects initially connects and works for a while but during the flight it freezes then the disconnect symbol shows . On the ground I rebooted the ap turn the range extender off and on which helped a bit. ( the range extender flashes green . Is the correct?)

    The stock P2V has a 300 meter max range for FPV in a perfect flying environment. If you exceed that range or if your environment is not perfect, you can expect to lose FPV.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a slightly different problem. Lately my iPhone will show all parameters for my P2V except the FPV. I can fly just fine, take pictures, everything normal except no picture. I'm using firmware 1.0.4 and don't wish to upgrade. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Then maybe the next day, the FPV will work fine. A week or two later, FPV won't work. Location doesn't seem to matter whether the FPV works or not.

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" only applies if it ain't broke.

    I can't say for sure but it may be a simple upgrade of your firmware.
