So I fly my Mavic Air regularly from my balcony here on the North Coast of Northern Ireland.

Today I flew out to a lovely old three masted yacht anchored just of shore. I fly with the FCC ‘hack’ and everything just works, great distance and hardly any warnings (mostly wind related).

I get back to my balcony and prepare to fly out again, I swap batteries and restart the drone, only this time I accidentally hit the ‘ok’ on the wifi zone warning and my Air reverted back to CE mode.

OH MY GOD. CE mode is terrible, I mean REALLY terrible. Max distance was about 2000ft before the video started freezing and stuttering and I got loads of warnings about interference. This was less than 3 minutes after I had flown the very same route in FCC mode and I got no video problems or warnings.

The second I get a chance I am swapping right back to FCC mode as the Mavic Air is just not fun to fly in CE mode.

If you do that illegal act, someone here might be forced to report you to the Irish authorities,
FCC mode is for Americans ONLY! :D :D Just kidding! Have fun. How about posting the video of that flight?
