Max switches off after 30 seconds

[ New ]

Operating a Max on a wing tie down at around +3°C outside temperature using Bluetooth. The iPhone 12 'lost connection' after about 30 seconds and the camera stopped recording . On landing, the camera restarted when the side-button was pressed and the battery was still at 41%.

Earlier on the same flight the Max recorded a take-off and departure for about 3 minutes and an in-flight recording of a couple of minutes also.

Never had a spontaneous shutdown when operating the camera manually inside the aircraft.

Seems unlikely to be a cooling problem with an approach speed of 90 knots and an OAT of +3°C, so maybe a Bluetooth issue?

Hi @hardystorm77618

 

It can also be due to interferences.

Do you observe the same when keeping the Wireless Connection/GPS off?

 

Thanks!

Thank you very much for your tip.

 

I have switched off GPS and shall try the camera again next time we fly (we are restricted by COVID lockdown rules at the moment).
