    Too Frequent Controller Calibration

    Is it normal before starting a new flight the controller always peeping to be calibrated? I'll calibrate the controller. Start the flight everything is normal. Put the drone away for a day and start another flight, but I have to calibrate the controller again before I start. This happens...

    Compass Mod Values on P4A using Litchi?

    So, I feel foolish. I went to fly my drone and got my very first calibrate compass warning. I tried to do it three times, but it was not working. DUH! Then I realized I was standing on a bridge, probably made up of huge amounts of steel under all that cement. Dumb. So I have since...

    My drone and me in Russia, no internet for 2 months

    Dear Pilots, I am completely new to the forum, but not new to flying phantoms. The picture is shot with me flying a P2. This summer I will go to arctic Russia (70 degrees north) with my P4a+ to film a documentary about research on geese. As I mentioned in the title, there will be no internet or...

    Flight no longer steady, flyaway/crash close call

    Hey Everyone, I have a DJI Phantom Vision 2+ That doesn't have that many hours on it. I can probably say it has only been on around 12 flights in its lifetime. With that said, the recent flights have become very unpredictable, with it not being able to hover steady, nor is it easy to land...

    Camera hangs at angle, rights itself after time

    Had a crash (my nephew, bless him). Fixed cable with OEM part. Drone flies and sends camera feed. Up and down camera movement are fine. But when I first turn it on, the camera hangs at a funny angle with one side dipped down. If I leave it on the counter for a few minutes, it gets back to level...

    Standard Having trouble calibrating the compass

    I've had a good read, am stood miles from any metals, the controller, other objects, in an open field that is just mud. I'm wearing zero metal - I'd be naked if I tried any harder! I've successfully calibrated several P4P's, an Inspire 1, a Mavic Pro all in this exact spot. The P3S just...

    Gimbal unbalanced - causing video capture to pan to the right?

    Hey mates, Some time ago I made a rookie mistake and tried to fly my P3S off a narrow balcony. A gust of wind took it sideways and it crashed into the railing with reasonable force. The yaw arm was broken at its thinnest point, as were two propellers, but I fixed both of those issues, or so I...

    Should we get a refund?

    Short version - we have a faulty drone and want a refund, DJI want to replace the battery (again) but we are not interested. Longer version below. My wife very generously decided to get me a drone for my birthday and spoke to the local DJi representative who recommended she get the DJI Vision...

    P4P Camera calibration not working

    Hi guys, since the first flight i´m getting the notification that i should calibrate the camera to get accurate focus. I have tried multiple times, both on the ground and in air to follow the instructions to focus on a high contrast object farther than 50m away. But whatever i try to focus on...

    Professional Does it matter if I hold the controller while calibrating the drone?

    My controller has a neck strap so everytime i fly i just hang it on my neck because it's both safe and comfortable. I also calibrate my drone everytime before flight. So is it dangerous if the calibration is performed while the controller is hanging down from my neck?

    So, NO I have not read the full manual yet, but I keep getting a message on the Pro+ screen asking me to calibrate "RC compass" with a blue figure eight diagram that I can not seem to be able to complete successfully. I have never seen this in previous Phantoms or online anywhere and wonder if...

    Professional Unable To Deploy Indoors - Compass Error

    Hello everyone! I have recently encountered a problem on my last job which has prevented me to fly my Phantom 3 Professional indoors. The error reported on screen was "Compass Error". Obviously this made sense, being inside a warehouse with probably a strong magnetic field interfering. What I...
