Hi

I have brand new Parrot Bebop 1 and skycontroller 1. I use Free Flight Pro on my smartphone. Everything is ok but one thing is strange. When i fly, above 60-100 meters from my skycontroller, video feedback on my phone is very ustable. Lag all the time with many artifacts on video. On closer ranges eveything is ok. I fly on playing field where there is no other wifi in range. Skycontroller have 2 km range but that meens that i can control the drone from 2 km? Or live feed back is assured ? That is huge differance. Right now I am scared that I will lose my drone when the live video feedback is lost. !00 meters is not enought.

Have You simmilar experiance? How far your live feedback is stable?
Thx.

The video feed is the first thing to be lost. The drone may still be controllable through the smartphone but of course you can't see the result so the only thing to do is initiate RTH. Just because there is no WiFi interference nearby does not mean that there is no other interference causing the problem. There are lots of possible sources of interference.

Agreed: 100 meters is really bad, but it may be entirely due to your flight environment. Try again far out in the country with no villages near.
