Hey guys,

Just purchased a new Phantom 3 SE last month. I updated all the firmware and took it out for its first use and it has an incredibly weak signal. Wasn't even that far away from me and was losing image signal and then controller signal.

I attached some screenshots to see if anyone had similar issues and could help?

All the best,

Aaron

It means he unlocked the beast specs within ... Its has the FCC transmitting power to fly far away...btw looking at your flight...it seems that the AC IS right above you and this also could cause wear signal..do read about your rc antenna

Hi Aaron, the weak signal may appear if the antenna could not receive the maximum receiving surface. Please fly the drone farther and check again.

Some explanations:

RC = Remote Control
AC = Air Craft
UAV = unmanned aerial vehicle (same as AC)
UAS = unmanned aerial system (same as AC and RC and your tablet/phone)

FCC certification is required for radio frequency devices in the United States. It sets limits on on intentional and unintentional electromagnetic radiation to protect the electromagnetic spectrum.

CE is a compliance scheme imposed by Europe. It also has requirements for the protection of the electromagnetic spectrum, but the requirements include other aspects such as the protection of the consumer and in some cases the environment.

its quite usual to lose connection on that range ... mine sometime at 230m totally gone and trigger RTH...but depends on locations / Wind / weather / Freq interference.........all this consider as factors.

What's the distance and altitude when the message appears? How about the environment? P3 SE uses WiFi and it is easily disturbed by the interference. Do more tests and keep us posted, thanks!
