Watch the video carefully.

i was too lazy to do all of this, I just did a full reset on my Ipad, then restored the Ipad from an old date, now I am running like 2.7.0, but I have a great signal again! just in time for the weekend.

I took a day off work on Tuesday exclusively for a day of flight. I really, really hope this is fixed by then. And when it is, I'm disabling auto-updates.

Your screen shot is very interesting. Channel 15 has a good signal but pops up in red = unstable. Not one green channel shown... Ouch.

It's not only with apple ..   

The same here  with Android 5.0.2  and a Samsung tab s 8.4  SM-T700

Video signal lost ... stripes .. more stripes ...  etc.

Hope they have an answer soon,  after the P2 and   P3 gold,  I did hope to have finally a good Phantom ...  but there is always something...
Most of the time after updates....

Hi, I have test it allso: iPad Air2   2.8.1 (roll back with "Charles" Web Debugging Program) and it is perfect without any problems. Than put the iPhone 6S+ with 2.8.2 and had the same problem as everybody here.
From this day on, I´m not a "auto updater" anymore.

I have the same problems since i use the 2.8.2, green stripes, black small stripes and this in the middle of nowhere. sometimes 20 meters away sometimes more, yesterday a full lost signal in 500 meters away for 15 seconds. that was not so funny.  And in the German forum there are many more with the same problems. its definitely not a problem from a small amount of people.
imho i think the firmware before that encryption patch, this with so many lost RC's in the update, was much more stable.

I just "Sploodged" DJI Go (revert to 2.8.1) on my iPad Air and happy to be back to normal operation for my P4.

DJI being a company you can't rely on, I'll never again update my P4/Go app.
Since weeks, I deal with the drop bug and will continue to live with it.

I noticed that after I turn off "Enable Hardware Decoding", close down DJI GO 2.8.2, and then restart it that the blank screen and 'weak signal' message have disappeared, or at the very least significant improvement. Can somebody please check if they have it switched on (hardware decode would be a natural choice if available), if switched on please try switching off then close down DJI GO, and then restart it. Do you notice any improvement ?

I switch it back on again (hardware decoding enabled) and notice problems, these continue after I switch off until I close down and restart the App'.

I too have noticed the loss of signal after the update, buta s i was trying to airplay another device, thought that was the problem. Remove the airplay and it was still there

Managed 3 flights tho

Tried to follow the revert to 2.8.1 for ios and got lost (not really a apple person, more android and windows but used ipad for additional apps)

Other strange thing is Ive never had anything but auto on the channels, my custom button has never worked and i cannot change the bit rate (location specific?)

I tried 2.8.1 on my iPhone 6S Plus and it works perfectly as it should, updated the iPhone to 2.8.2 and it now has the same problems as the iPad.

I don't think you can change it and am pretty sure it works via GPS location.

I was in Florida last week with mine and it automatically had the option to go custom and pick channels, back in England now and it won't let me click Custom again.

The power output is set by GPS location. For some reason the functionality of the radio channel selection is set by region which of course we can change.

That's because by now they know how widespread this problem is.  It's affecting a very large group of P4 users.

At least they're not instructing us to do things that will not fix a bad app.

I am surprised they have not removed the update.  It shows their concern for customers having these issues as not a very important one.  No transparency as to what's going on.

not to mention people who have not yet used the app or are attributing the weak signal issue to interference, or the users who just don't use forums...

I have reserved myself to believing this will not be corrected until after the memorial day holiday, even though DJI is china based, Apple and their employees are US based, and will be on vaca till Tuesday more than likely and they ultimately have to approve the app.

unless DJI issues a firmware fix to work with new app.... we will just have to wait and see unfortunately.

FYI I tried the manual channel 20 & 13 and issue was still present, although not as bad but nevertheless still present, with 2.8.1 it was flawless not so much as a flicker and was on auto as intended.

I understand bug squashing can be cumbersome however this has been going on 4 days now, and that is sad.

hey but least we have facebook live now...lol

Flying again!!! Downgraded to 2.8.1 and am now flying free of video issues with my ipad pro 9.6. Tried the "new" 2.8.2 but still had video issues, got better with turning of hardware acceleration, only a few black streaks through the video, but absolutely perfect with 2.8.1.

It seems to have to do with the transmission channel that is being selected.  I have a feeling that the Facebook Live feature has changed this a bit.  I am experiencing the same thing, and I hope to fly once today using a manually selected channel.

They do take the brunt of the snafu's by R&D, kudos to them for keeping it together.

that response by them is a standard damage control tactic until R&D figures out where they tripped.

I don't even what to mention the reviews 2.8.2 is getting on the apple app store..its bad.

Same issues - weak image transmission, distorted video, video drop out. All happen at close range. None affects UAV control.

I'd love to rollback to 2.8.1 but couldn't directly access the app file from the earlier Skydrive post.

Phantom 4, current firmware
iPad Air 2 running 9.3.2
DJI GO 2.8.2

Restarted all devices.
Rebooted iPad.
Emptied video cache.

Many thanks to the folks who are posting with brevity and civility.
