Hi,
I did my first flight with my ANAFI today. Flies great, but not so far , I lost connections with the drone under 100m, in a clear area with no wifi networks around... First disapointment...and a big one when you fly it after owning a mavic pro,which was able to fly few Km away without any interferences ...So,it was my first "emergency" RTH...

The other issue I met was the unability to make proper zoom.. It lags a lot, even when signal is strong...
I use a iPad mini 2. I know it's an old device, and I wanted to know if you guys already experienced lags while zoom/unzoom with this kind of device?

I wonder if I need to buy a better phone to run freeflight 6...
I read that a modded freeflight version can also improve signal strenght , but only runs on Android...
If I need to install this app, I'll need Android device, but I'm afraid about this: I used an Android device first with my mavic pro on DJIGO4, and it was laggy and I experienced a lot of freezes ...
Is there same issues with freeflight 6 and Android?
Which is the best Android phone to use with freeflight 6?

Thanks a lot for your advices!!

Hola,
Hice mi primer vuelo con mi ANAFI hoy. Vuela genial, pero no tan lejos, perdí las conexiones con el dron por debajo de los 100 metros, en un área despejada sin redes wifi alrededor ... Primera decepción ... y una grande cuando vuelas después de tener un mavic pro, que era capaz de volar a pocos kilómetros de distancia sin interferencias ... Entonces, fue mi primer RTH de "emergencia" ...

El otro problema que encontré fue la imposibilidad de hacer un zoom adecuado ... Se retrasa mucho, incluso cuando la señal es fuerte ...
Uso un iPad mini 2. Sé que es un dispositivo antiguo, y quería saber si ustedes ya experimentaron retrasos al hacer zoom / unzoom con este tipo de dispositivo.

Me pregunto si necesito comprar un teléfono mejor para ejecutar Freeflight 6 ...
Leí que una versión modificada de vuelo libre también puede mejorar la intensidad de la señal, pero solo se ejecuta en Android ...
Si necesito instalar esta aplicación, necesitaré un dispositivo Android, pero tengo miedo de esto: primero utilicé un dispositivo Android con mi mavic pro en DJIGO4, y fue lento y experimenté muchas congelaciones ...
¿Hay los mismos problemas con Freeflight 6 y Android?
¿Cuál es el mejor teléfono Android para usar con Freeflight 6?

Muchas gracias por tus consejos !!

por For my opinion the best phone for that drone is the Samsung S8 plus is the one I use for the Anafi and I do very well Greetings

iPhone XR has been great. Big screen and runs smooth. Anafi doesn’t go very far tho :( I have the same issue.

OK, Thank you, I'll probably go for s8... but I need to check a few more options before spending so much money!! :(

Yep it sucks that a drone like that can't reach at least 500m!! Modded version of freeflight 6 seems to work better for some people here, thats why I wanna try one an android device...(in europe only as I read in some topics...) Maybe Freeflight 6 is less bugged than DJI GO4...

thanks guys!

Android is better for FCC and range with mod app, iOS is better for stitching panoramas quicker

There is no comparing range between a Mavic Pro (Occusync) and Anafi (wifi). The farthest I've gone with the Anafi in my heavy wifi interference neighborhood is 500' at a height of 300' and things start to break up. I don't know the limit of my MP in that same area because the connection is rock solid as far as I can fly it before losing sight of it.

That said the Anafi with FF6 is easier to set-up, I think I've only had to calibrate the compass twice (MP every time I fly), the interface is easier to navigate and flight planning is very straight forward.
