Software issue: My Phantom 3 will NOT go past 50 METERS!!! I tried changing the distance limit but it did not work.

Maybe I missed a software update??
Please tell me if anybody has this issue too because I can't go far enough.There was a software update and the range problem was fixed.

This is not much of a problem for me though because I also have the dji spark.
But please help me with this issue.

Hello and good day sparkdrone. I am sorry to know that you are having this issues with your DJI Phantom 3 Standard. Can you please check if the firmware of the drone is on it's most recent one. If not can you please update the firmware of the said drone to it's latest. I will be providing you the link where to find the most recent one can be found ( https://www.dji.com/phantom-3-st ... te_search#downloads ). Have you tried to fly your drone to a different open space location to see if the issue will still persist? In addition please refer this DJI tutorial video and adjust the antenna to see whether it works better. Please keep us posted on the said issue for us to help you further. Thank you.

Just asking here, but have you been able to fly further before?  If so, what might you have changed, like mobile device?

I did try to update the app but then I was not able to take off the limit.I've never changed the mobile device though.

Thje RC unit, with mobile device, must be connected to the aircraft, with all switched on, otherwise you cannot change the settings. And you must login to thr DJI portal and leave it logged in, even though you might switch everything off.

When I tried changing the settings everything was on.

I seem to remember thinking that the settings page was not exactly intuitive.

But anyway ...

Power up all ... AC / RC and GO.

Select the P3 Standard
Have camera view ... now tap the three bars Menu in top right corner to get the settings.
Tap the Drone icon (top most one) to get to flight settings
ENABLE flight modes by sliding green to the right ...
DE-select Beginner mode by sliding to left
Distance limit - you need to DE-select so that you can fly further.

They all basically work together ... you can select one or other for specifics ...
There is one condition though that 50m gets imposed ... if you fly WITHOUT GO running .... Because you can fly the P3 without tablet / phone ... but then it auto limits to 50m box.



I did the test based on another forum discussion and it cost me dearly !!
