Took this video today; the little bird flies pretty well, even in a bit of a breeze.

I added 4 stills at the end of the video.

I use a Gamesir T1s tethered to my S9+. I was also using a Xiaomi Mi Wifi 2 range extender. I didn't do any distance testing, but had a very good signal and video feed the whole time. The range extender is on the roof of my car :)

Cheers,
Phil

I see a lot of frame drops. That should not be the case with a range extender. Could it be that you had some bluetooth device on (the phone itself, smartwatch, fitness tracker)? I am still amazed by the photo quality of this tiny drone!

I think there were a couple of things happening; bluetooth was still on (although I didn't have it connected to anything at the time) and also LTE was on and I think this was the culprit. Next time I'll put it in Airplane mode with just the wifi talking to the extender.

Also, when I rotated to follow the vehicle, it was fairly fast and that caused problems with pixelation.

BT on is a problem even if not connected to anything. It may scan constantly in the background. Many apps do this in the background and you don't notice.

Airplane mode is the key.
