Description

Most drones come equipped with GPS systems - which largely contribute to in-flight stability, positioning, and Return-to-Home actions.

This notification is warning you that the GPS signal is weak, which may lead to loss of control of the drone if a better signal is not achieved.

Drones will often enter ATTI (Attitude) mode when GPS is lost. As a result, the drone will tend to "drift" - especially in strong winds.

Common causes of a weak GPS signal are radio emissions and space weather. Also, keep in mind that GPS and GLONASS satellites are constantly in orbit - which means that your signal may vary depending on the time/day.
