Connectivity Problem (Xbee)

Postby julioall » Mon Feb 01, 2016 8:16 pm


I am having trouble with the telemetry signal when flying. This is what happens:

At short (<500m) distances connection is stable.
At intermediate (~500m) distances connection is continuously lost and recovered.
At long (>500m) distances connection is completely lost.

Hardware: XBee PRO S3B and Xbee PRO 900 RF. This happens with both modules.

This never happened and I have been flying with both GP2 and Xbee for around a year.

Has anyone have experienced anything like this?

If the setup is completely the same maybe your XBee amplifior fried because of exessive heat?

Seems like the XBee is busted but not from heating. Quite strange to be honest. I will just replace it.

Thanks Tom!
