    Why won't the motors start. Class G airspace, no restrictions.

    Fly Dawg, I am trying to follow you. Where/how did you find this data. I converted the DAT file to .csv and looked at the csv file with Excel, but I did not see this info. Maybe a another hint/ Thanks.

    Why won't the motors start. Class G airspace, no restrictions.

    Wow! What a surprise. This AC flew fine yesterday. Then I went over to the new location, expecting everything to be OK and I had the no=start problem. I simply turned everything off, and then everything worked perfectly. Two perfect mission flights and some manual flying - all OK. That was a...

    Why won't the motors start. Class G airspace, no restrictions.

    I was in class G airspace trying to fly a Litchi mission with my "new" ( low mileage - 15 miles) P3P called "Maxwell" (I had just flown a mission at home the day before.) This was a new flying area for me. I was on green grass in the open. I uploaded the mission and everything went OK except the...

    Litchi Mission Switch to ATTI mode mid mission - P3P

    Capt KO, don't wait for the ATTI mode to happen when you are not expecting it. Just calibrate your compass (and the IMU) when you install your device on your AC. And calibrate again whe you take the device off of your AC. Joe KC7GHT

    Sun Shade

    Here is a link to the Hoodman that I fly with on my 9.7" Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 with my P3P. I bought both the HAV2 and the extension HAV2E. Been using them for several years. No glare, no reflections, just pure bright video FPV. Works in the direct noon day Arizona sun. It is a bit bulky, but...

    Tablets , Tablets, .....TABLETS!

    I have been using my Samsung 9.7" tablet. 8 core. Model Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, (SM-T813)(64 GB) In addition to a (128 or 256 GB micro SD plug in chip) very successfully since my first P3P in late 2015. I have three P3P. I have gone thru all the firmware updates over that period, and am using the...

    Any mods for P3P? *Soon to be Phantom 3 Pro owner/pilot*

    The P3P is a fantastic (AC) aircraft. So good that I have three P3P. Combined with the Litchi App, it does everything I want/need. I have two mods that increase the durability. They both are devices made of aluminum. One replaces the DJI plastic tablet mount on the RC remote control. Not the...

    air data info

    I would fly with all of those batteries, given I don't have any more info on them. I would use your airdata account to watch the major deviations - which I don't think you have any yet. See the attached photo of my oldest P3P battery. I am still flying with it, and it acts normally. Once in a...

    Litchi Mission Switch to ATTI mode mid mission - P3P

    Thanks Rod, and everyone else that helped. How dumb can I get. I (use too )know better. Thanks for the compass primer link. It is a very good refresher.

    hdop - Is there any indication of horizontal position accuracy from DJI Go or Litchi?

    Thank you for the answer. I don't want any more video latency either. I will just have Litchi warn me every 15 seconds when my satellite count drops below 12. That may give me enough time to abort the mission and climb for more satellites, and fly home.

    Litchi Mission Switch to ATTI mode mid mission - P3P

    FYI: Maybe I have found the reason why those two Litchi missions, at the fly-in-get-together, failed in ATTI mode! The night before the fly-in, Charlie said to bring my fishing bomb drop attachment. So I bolted on my Gannet fishing bomb drop. It contains some electronics and a battery! (see...

    hdop - Is there any indication of horizontal position accuracy from DJI Go or Litchi?

    Fly Dawg, I am wondering why it would be such a large task. I believe that the information (hdop) is available on the AC DAT file in real time. Also I understand, that in the DJI Go app it is available as green bars next to the satilite count display. I would like to understand why this couldn't...

    Overheating battery

    What was the maximum battery temperature you recorded? I have had a maximum battery temperature of 152.5 degrees F in the Phoenix, Arizona, USA area. I did not get a warning and I have had many more flights on that battery and that P3P aircraft. I am just curious. Joe KC7GHT

    hdop - Is there any indication of horizontal position accuracy from DJI Go or Litchi?

    FYI: Litchi has the sattlite count, but not the bars. Thanks

    hdop - Is there any indication of horizontal position accuracy from DJI Go or Litchi?

    I looked at the variables names that are sent from the AC to the DJI Go App .txt file, as well as sent from the AC to the Litchi App .csv file, and did not see hdop - even though hdop is loged in real time in the P3P AC DAT file. I would think that this parameter would be helpful when flying...
