I have been flying missions using a Phantom 4 Pro V2 and, for the most part, things have gone well. Drone Deploy lost connection a couple of times, but other than pausing for a moment, things continued without a problem.
Recent flights have had the issue more often and, as a result, the drone begins returning home once the signal is lost, then once connection is re-established, it moves to the closest line of the targeted area and resumes. Usually, this is at the ends of the mapping area, causing the edges of the mapped area to not be there. I have noticed that as soon as the connection is lost, aside from pausing the flight, image recording ceases and the camera icon and count actually disappears from the monitor.
After reading some of the threads, I’m wondering if sunlight could be causing the sensors to see an obstacle. The only thing I see odd about that is the fact that connection is only lost after around 1,000ft or less. But, from takeoff, everything is fine. There is nothing in the areas where the disconnects occurred that would be a cause for signal disruption (actually, the one area that we thought would be sketchy was fine).
I call upon your knowledge. Has anyone suffered from this problem and any ideas for a fix?
