    Okay... I'm posting this because I'm at a loss. Probably something simple, as it usually is with me, lol.

    The "distance" icon in the app doesn't work well. I flew yesterday, and after all the necessary calibrations, I powered up. Although the quad was at most 8-10 ft from me, the app reported it was 57 ft. away. It continued to fluctuate, but never was correct. I flew one battery, brought quad into land, and the app reported it was 36' from me. New battery.. Powered up, but left props off. Distance was reported as zero. Turned on props, let it sit, then hover, and got a fluctuating number, but between 18-23' . Still not accurate. I've seen this before, but over the course of flying, it seemed to correct itself. But it "ain't right".
    Any suggestions will be appreciated.
