    Phantom 3 Pro Gimbal Issues

    Just wanted to provide an update. The board came in and booted up just fine. Everything back to normal, except the sd card wouldn't lock into place. I figured out how the internal locking mechanism works and with the board apart I can get it to lock in. Just don't remove it! Anyway, YMMV...

    P3A motors turns off when battery reaches 20%

    Phantom 3 Pro Gimbal Issues

    So, doing some research, it appears that this is a known issue resulting from a bad FW update? Interesting. The drone worked fine, has minimal flight time, never so much as a bump, and after updating firmware suddenly my main board is fried? Really? See this is the problem with companies that...

    Found P3A in austin Texas

    I kind of agree with norm. Nobody bothered to assist the honest non-flyer identify markings, question where it went down, or try to pull flight data off the aircraft. People could have been a little more helpful. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk

    Can I buy this anywhere other than best buy in person?

    You do have the blades on the right engines right? They have to be installed correctly as they are not all the same. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk

    Update firmware with sd card or with usb cable?

    My mac book pro doesn't have an SD card slot, so I just hook the cable up to the gimble. Copy the firmware update file to the SD root directory, and reboot. Updates just fine. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk

    Got rid of my phantom

    If a drone, basically a toy, stresses anybody out that bad, they need more responsibility in their life. Of all my stress, my drone doesn't even register in the top 20. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk

    Where have you put your FAA number?

    I put mine between the rotor wings. I think that its funny that my drone, if you squint your eyes, looks like "fastnipples" Thus, I have named the bird Nipples. 20160110_203248 by jcarlilesiu posted Jan 10, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    Fell Out of Sky - Total Loss

    Disagree. I'm new to the forum and was immediately turned off by the sarcastic and demeaning attitude of some of the posters. In this thread, specifically that red hot poker dude. Everybody is a Johnny hard guy while hiding behind the Internet. Every forum has a few, and you just learn...
