    Professional flashing red lights and no camera connection, troubleshooting?

    Yes, I seem to have come to the same conclusion. I've reinstalled everything and updated all the firmware and it seems to be functioning properly, too windy for a test flight just now but hopefully I'll get the chance before I fly out Monday. Updating took several tries and eventually got there...

    Professional flashing red lights and no camera connection, troubleshooting?

    There probably is. Will check and report back. However, I think when i first started it up I didn' have a microsd inserted. Thanks

    Professional flashing red lights and no camera connection, troubleshooting?

    forgot to say that the app then crashes, when it can't connect to the camera. I've checked that the app is up to date too.

    Professional flashing red lights and no camera connection, troubleshooting?

    Hi there, I wonder if anyone can shed some light on a problem I've unexpectedly encountered. I used the P3P successfully less than a month ago. At the time all firmware was up to date. I put it back in it's case and that was that. I'm off on a shoot on monday so yesterday I got the thing out...

    Altitude issues in waypoint mode

    OK, since this event I've taken more careful note of altitude changes and in P-GPS and atti-mode I've observed lots of both gradual and abrupt altitude changes. I've never noticed them before because I don't fly assuming the phantom knows precisely where it should be (although to be fair it does...

    Altitude issues in waypoint mode

    Price and convenience for me. I started out with an s800 with zenmuse and a GH3, back in the day when GPS couldn't be relied upon in the deep south so we only flew attitude. I needed to take a pilot with me on the shoots (which was great fun but obliterated profits) and if we crashed I lost most...

    Altitude issues in waypoint mode

    As it was my first waypoints experience I'm aware I might well have done something wrong in setting up the mission, but the hight variance was dramatic! I've not used Litchi and given my limited experience I'll probably stick with DJIGO for now but from what I'm reading it seems the same generic...

    Altitude issues in waypoint mode

    Thanks for the reply. I did not knowingly turn on the VPS, I will check the log, if it contains that info. The explanation makes sense and the weather here in southern New Zealand is very dynamic at the moment which won't help I'm sure. I'll fly again if the wind drops and work out if i was...

    Altitude issues in waypoint mode

    On my first waypoints mission my phantom flew below the altitude of the home point and did not seem to even approach the altitude that the waypoint was set at. My first question is: how do these phantoms calculate their altitude? I know they have barometers but do they not also work in...
