How's the range on the wifi and is there lag?

Our original AR.Drone has wifi connectivity problems at the moment. It likes to just drop like a brick when it loses signal from my tablet.

How's the range on the wifi and is there lag?

Our original AR.Drone has wifi connectivity problems at the moment. It likes to just drop like a brick when it loses signal from my tablet.

I'm still not comfortable flying the Bebop even though it's very stable in 30+ kph winds the max distance I've set my settings is 30meters high and 100meters far. No input lag in that distance but as with wifi fpv it suffers a bit of lag. The field I fly it in has a cell tower nearby and the interference might cause a flyaway so I'm not comfortable flying it beyond 100meters.

When the Bebop looses connection it either goes back to where it took of or where the phone/controllers last coordinates.

Pros:
- easy to operate
- open source = has apps available in ios and android from different devs
- stable in strong winds
- hovers great
- FPV
- good image stabilization

Cons:
- short battery life = around 7mins
- fpv breaks up at long distance and lags a bit
- gps sometimes take time to connect to satellites
- flightplan costs too much for a feature that should be free
- camera just ok
- Bebop needs to be powered up to transfer media

Despite the cons I really enjoy my Bebop.
