Hello All,

Began trying to fly with an iPhone 5 and the Mavic in wifi mode.  Works okay but if I fly more than 15-16m/ 50ft I consistently get the "lost signal" message.  I've tried it in two different locations and at the second location selected two different channels on 2.4ghz freq. that were "stable" with no change.  The things I've tried don't extend the range beyond the 15m/50ft.  I'm running an iPhone 5 with .1000 firmware on the Mavic.  I've had no issues with range using the RC.  

Any suggestions?  

Thanks in advance.

Please put the mobile in flight mode or change another recommended mobile to check. Make sure there is no interference such as buildings, trees, hills and magnetic interference.

I'll try that.  

I wasn't getting any errors (compass or otherwise) so not sure if magnetic fields are an issue.  I also have an iPhone SE that I can try with.  

Thanks,

This is why most of us don't use wi-fi on the mavic, it doesn't have good range at all, there is nothing wrong with your mavic...
