Hello DJI professionals,
I only have half range with the Mavic Pro.
The reason is definitely one of various crashes.
What could be the reason?
where are the antennas? Are those in the foot left and right? or are these just the WLAN antennas.
Thank you in advance!

South Australia, the great southern land
The antenna are in both front legs, and if that is the cause of the signal issue, they are 3 little hex screws (1.5mm ?) and change the whole leg over.
Parts might be an issue, check around first to see what's available.

What else could be the reason ?
Not sure, how far are you achieving in flight ?
Do you NEED more than half the ginormous range the M1P normally gives ??
(Considering VLOS rule and safer flight in general.)

Here's an old thread on this, you might pick up a few tips.

Here is the solution to my problem:

I had a broken foot that I glued with superglue.
Some glue got on the antenna and the coax-cable.
The range is correct again, after cleaning the antenna.

Thanks for your answers.
