Hi Guys

I may have solved the common range issue with the phantom 3 standard:
I installed the 1.5.7+ firmware on the device and used the DJI Go Geo Beta App, instead of the newest DJI Go App!
http://www.dji.com/flysafe/geo-system

Well, i flew only 250m with a hight of 70m for about 5min, but i had absolutely no issues and a perfect signal and video transfer! By the way, i was in a city area with high interference!
With the newest firmware and DJI Go App, i always lost the signal after 30 to 50m.
so, i'm quite happy with this solution.

Since i'm doing my yearly military sevice right now, i won't have the chance to fly much further within the next two weeks. But maybe anyone else can test it.

Good luck!

Cheers

Yes there are two methods:
1) Inside the app: you have to press rc relync (or similar) and then you have 50 seconds to press the button on the botton of the drone
2) you have to switch up and down left switch on the top of rc (i dont' remember if s1 or s2) until rc beep. then you have to press the buttom on the bottone of the drone
Sorry for my bad english i hope you understand.

yes, i have tried the 2 methods.

Try this: Power off aircraft, controller and DJI Go app. In app manager in your phone go to DJI Go app, clear cache, clear data, clear tik on the show notifications, force stop then uninstall. After all re install DJI Go app and try again.
Running sequence:
1) Start controller
2) Start DJI Go app
3) Connect to controller
4) Start aircraft
and then try linking
I hope its work.

Alright guys, i made some more testflights today. Flew a range of about 700m and 120m height and had absoluetely no signal issues. One in a mountain.area, one in a citiy-area. Perfect video transmission, perfect rc-signal.
I'm totally happy with my settings right now and i sure won't change the firmware or the dji go app anymore.
