Can someone calm me down and tell about you'r in-city fly's expirience?
I have this drone for a few weeks but don't have possabilyty to fly outside the city.
Every take away we start with "Warning:Strong interference, please be cautious in long distance flight".
And flying distance like a 100-150 m. before signal lost and Phantom RTH.
I have try to fly in a 3 different places, but always got this short range (I know hot antenna works). So if you can tell about your in-city fly's — thanks a lot!

Here is my flight log:

Hi ,
The flight distance in city could be very short because of all kinds of interference . Cities are different , interference could be different, they could hardly be taken as reference . Anyway , Please take it outside for a test !

Why is your font so small?  I see posts that small now and then, but I'm not sure how people who aren't using a full sized screen are supposed to read them easily.  Anyway, I would expect the Standard to have quite a shortened range in a city, since the range is somewhat limited, even in wide open spaces.  Remember, ranges given in specs are usually best case scenario.  It's all down hill from there usually.  Trees, buildings, etc., would all have negative effect on the reliable range.

I am chiming in here because what has not been said. The range of operation is not just affected by building and other structures getting in the way, it is also strongly dependant upon what other forms of radio interference are present in your area. We do not have exclusive use of the radio band that is used for these aircraft, it is shared by heaps of other services, and they could be drowning out your signal. And that is the message your system is giving you.
