Please don't kill your bird.  Drone murder is such a cruel way to go.

So anyways, let us see if we can help you with your issue.  Did you update to the very latest release?
How long have you been flying and are you flying in the locations you did before your issue?

daft question.
In the app, i have noticed a max distance setting just under max height setting.Have you checked what distance it is set too.
I can't remember seeing it before the last update.
Remember to check all your settings in the app after any updates.

Your money.  Your rock.

Let us know if that makes you feel better.

It appears DJI screwed the pooch.  They know about it.  Be patient and give them a shot at fixing it.

Am I happy about it?  No.  But we're all fairly heavily invested in our equipment.  No one is perfect.  Let's see if they get it resolved before we jump off the bridge.

I thinks this is what we are going to do at the end. Smash it with stone and video it on social media. This can be a new trend for the p3s owners. Same problem here and there. And nothi g solves this damn problem.

So I am confused, How do people stay on an earlier version of firmware? I have been under the impression that once an update is released the bird will not fly until update.

I've read a number of posts that claim that you must update, but a lot of people claim that they have not updated in a long time. Would the moderators care to chime in with the right answer?

No, you do not have to update. The DJI people here will tell you that it is best to fly on the latest firmware and software, burt nothing forces you to. I am still on 1.4 and have no plans to change. Just ignore the nagging in the app.

You stay on it by not upgrading. Just ignore the prompts and continue on with your life.
I am on 1.4.6 and doubt it will ever change.

I've got news for you.  The firmware version has nothing to do with the Standard range loss issue.  I also had a Standard that worked very well,  better even than advertised.  Then,  after a few flights,  I was told "Firmware Update Required".  So I updated the firmware.  Ever since then,  the Standard flies about as well as a poorly made paper airplane.  I lose signal at any range or altitude.  I lose signal even if just hovering 25 feet away and 25 feet up.  One second full bars on the signal.  Next second no signal and automatic rth.  I live in a remote area.  I have no neighbor for over a mile.  There is no interference here.  There is some issue that is related to firmware update, I think, but not firmware version.  I have been waiting since that update for a fix.  I will probably die waiting.   Oh,  the update was to firmware version 1.2.40+.  And the app is 2.60.

Yes,  but the point is,  I am on 1.2.40+.  A much earlier version than you. Downgrading the firmware will not fix the problem.  Once you have this problem,  only DDJI can fix it.  And if you are out of warranty, they will charge you for the fix.

Then you should send it to Dji.  The only other thing you can do is install a range extender of some kind.  I have been working on this issue for almost a year and I can tell you,  there is nothing you can do to fix it.  Only Dji can.  You can get better range by using a range extender or you can send it back to Dji.

ok the range extender or similar things may be a solution for extending the range and it takes maximum a half hour and may be $150 3th party extender things. but this MUST be DJI's problem that they have already ignored. and i can not accept this unfair judgment. that is my problem.

did you try it on an area that is wide open, no houses or power lines? See if it still happens? Did you look at the video about antenna positioning?
In the city there will be interference.. I've lost signal as near at 200ft, and I also managed to fly as far as 7000ft...  It really depends....


If none of this helps, and the issue is really bad, do contact DJI.. maybe there's some issue with the drone of the RC?

I am so angry with DJI for this update.  It's clear that many Phantom owners have been crippled by the firmware/app "upgrade."  I have a P3S and could get 3000 ft video connection before the update.  It's down to about 300ft now on the same course.  I still have full control over the quad, but video disappears very fast.  I don't even want to fly it anymore.  I get the same range on my Chinese toy quads - only this cost me 7 times as much.

Thanks a lot DJI.
