    So here's my problem.
    I bought a Vision 2 Plus and it worked amazing. I was using an iPhone 5 with iOS7.
    Just yesterday I bought an iPhone 6 (with iOS8) and now I'm unable to fly the phantom 60-75% of the time.

    I'll initially connect and everything appears normal, but then 70% of the time, once I take off my phone will disconnect from the phantom within 10 seconds, and I lose all video control.

    As I'm typing this, I have it turned on at home simply so I can try and transfer 13 photos across to my phone. It transfers 3 of them and then I receive the "Connect to Phantom" error, as the wifi has dropped.

    Any help? Is this an issue on my end? Do I have a faulty unit?

    Is it switching by default to your preferred home wifi network?

    Nope. I'm 40km away from the nearest WiFi (out in the bush). I've also tried with my phone on airplane mode and that doesn't help.

    DJI are unable to help "Because [they] are in China and the iPhone 6 is not released yet".
    Please for the love of god someone help me with this issue. I don't want to have to force the place I bought it from to give me a refund for selling me defective goods...
