Hi all.
I've been flying my MA for a couple of weeks now. I find that I get a low signal warning at 600-700 feet away and 200 feet altitude. Is that usual? Perfect line of sight BTW, in an open area.

That’s too far for Beginner’s mode. What country are you in? Outside USA usually means you’re flying inCE mode. Research the FCC ‘hack’, you won’t regret it!

Yeah do the fcc mode switch, happily get near the 2 mile mark without disconnect in low interference areas with no special tweaks, and even in built up areas get over a mile without issue.

Is it possible to do the FCC hack with an iPhone? I haven't got an android device.

Thanks all. I think I'm going to get a budget Android tablet to fly it as well.
I wouldn’t be so hasty! Many of the Android users on here are having all sorts of problems! I’d do a lot of research before you buy a “budget” Android tablet!
