FAQ: What happens if my drone loses connection?

There may be situations where your drone could lose connection or lose connection to the Skycatch flight app. Typically the drone will return home depending on the type of connection loss and length. Some common scenarios:

  1. The app loses connection or is shut down due to a faulty USB cord or software issue (app or mobile device freezes). In these instances, the drone will continue to execute the planned mission and will still RTL when the battery reaches 25%.
  2. The loss of connection is between the remote controller and the drone. This is typically related to distance (if the drone exceeds the distance that the remote controller signal can maintain) or magnetic interference from the surrounding areas.
  3. The third example of loss of connection is if the GPS signal to the drone is lost. In this instance, the drone will typically land in place since the drone will be unable to determine its location due to a lack of GPS signal.
