Just do a range and speed test.

Background information
  • With phone app only (without the beacon nor the controller)
  • Firmware 15.10.17
  • 15°C
  • Cloudy
  • Wind level 2
  • Open place
Test result
  • Max. speed > 6m/s or 21.6 kph (13.4mph)
  • Max. range ~ 120m (393.7ft)
Connectivity
  • Within the range of about 120 meters, the phone connection is good, and there is no abnormality.
  • Slightly more than 120 meters, the screen of the mobile phone was significantly delayed, and a lost signal message also appeared.
Operation
  • Acceptable and quite good
  • It will be better to operate with the controller. (I guess)

Interesting. What kind of phone did you use?

I've read elsewhere here that someone found they got more range with their iPad mini than iPhone presumably because the iPad has a stronger WIFI signal.

I used an old Android smartphone that was made in 2018.

I may do more tests.

With understanding the limits clearly, I am quite happy with flying the bird. :cool:
