    I was flying my HolyStone100 drone yesterday when it strangely went off course. I could not control its direction or its height as it flew away from me.

    The drone was temporarily lost, but I was finally I was able to locate it by following the strength of its WiFi signal. (The stronger the signal, the closer I was to the drone.) It was then that I noticed that a neighbor's WiFi signal was very strong, and 5G. Did the 5G signal overcome the much smaller signal from the drone and the controller, causing the drone to go off course?

    Thank you,
