I recently had a Mavic Air (Wifi only, no OccuSync) which would lose connectivity when flying at around 2800-2900 ft away by the lake near my house. I figured this was normal as WiFi is not meant to go too far, even though the max range was 2.4 miles (~12500 ft). So I purchased the Mavic 2 Pro which has Occusync 2.0 and touts a near 5 mile range, or ~26,000 ft. Unfortunately, I lost signal several times when I was around 3100-3200 ft away.
This is pretty disappointing to only be able to fly half to three-quarters of a mile away. I realize I was never going to get the max range under normal conditions, but this seems very low, especially given a lot of the journey was over water without much interference.
Is this normal?
