    Maybe a silly question, but have you checked Maximum Distance setting in the app?

    The more of these threads I see, the more I realize that being forced not to be an early adopter might not be the worst thing...

    Sorry about the issues you have experienced, Geoff.

    Did you find a solution to this issue? My Mavic has the same issue. I get about 2500' max distance and it gets a red bar.

    Just dropped it off at UPS.. This is heartbreaking.. After waiting for 2 months now I have to wait again. And I have a family vacation coming up in 3 weeks so this is killing me.

    Sorry about that. Mine flies to the limit of the battery without as much as a hiccup ... definitely a mechanical issue
