I get where my p4 locks on to 16  satellites but as soon as it takes off and move 5 feet I loose all gps. Anyone having these problems?  It comes and goes intermittently

What kind of areas are you flying in? Did you notice this after a firmware update or a hard landing? Is everything up to date firmware wise?

Residential area I fly there all the time. Not sure why this happens. Most days it's been ok. Others it's a flying brick.

The most likely explanation is a bad connection from the GPS unit to the main board.
If you go somewhere different (a few miles away) do you have the same thing happening?

Sounds like a dodgy GPS/GLONASS receiver/antenna as Labroids suggested. Might be worth doing a firmware refresh of P4 using DJI Assistant 2, just in case it's a glitch in the system causing it.
