    Video lag after calibration

    I have got P3P and for now, I'm very satisfied with it, however, for some reason, when I do the calibration on my drone, I get a huge video lag about 6 seconds, when I reboot the drone and the RC it disappears. The device that I'm using is Sony Xperia M2 (I'm aware that this is an older...

    Phantom 3 - Compass error free flights? Anyone?

    Hello! After sending in my Phantom 3 Advanced for inspection at DJI's US service center in California, it was repaired under warranty and shipped back to me. The repair "quote" (even though it was repaired under warranty) indicated it had the "Phantom 3 main control board component" replaced...

    Compass Calibration Yes/No

    As a general rule I always calibrate my compass before lift off (I'm a safety kinda guy), however when I get to my next location which sometimes is 10 miles away, (once I was 40 miles from my last location) I turn everything on it tells me that my home point has been updated please check it on...

    Compass calibration thoughts

    Last night, while sitting in a totally metal chair (with metal armrests), I opened the compass on my Iphone. The compass rose was completely whacked, showing east as north, etc., and occasionally flipping 180 degrees from that. Thinking about compass calibration on my Phantom, I rose from my...

    "Limp Gimbal" Motors Are Not Getting Power BUT Camera Works

    Looking for some help with my phantom 4 after a mild crash (hit a tv inside a house). The drone was "non responsive" after the crash and required firmware updates to the drone and RC to get it back working. Now that everything is back up and running, the gimbal is "limp" ; by this I mean you can...

    Calibration while using a power wheelchair?

    Hey all, I use a power wheelchair and just received my Phantom 4. I've read a lot about people insisting or being paranoid about compass calibration around anything that is metal. Founded or not I have no other choice since I cannot walk and my chair is one huge piece of metal and perhaps...

    Professional Phantom 3 Professional STUCK in IMU update

    About 4 weeks ago I updated to latest firmware to get my PP3 back in the air after a long winter's nap. I Had gave it a test flight before updating and all was well. I updated at my usual spot then moved the PP3 to my table where I always do my IMU updates so as to not have magnetic...

    Unstable: GPS Woes

    I just got my Phantom 2 back from DJI who replaced the 2.4 receiver. I can't calibrate: keep getting yellow flashes. When connected to the Assistant, it will not show "GPS Mode", but defaults to "Normal Flying". Now when I switch to Naza Mode, I get one green + three red flashes when...

    IMU calibration platform

    I made a handy, little IMU calibration platform from an old 18" ceramic floor tile. I used JB Weld to glue nuts to the corners of the tile, I put rubber feet on the bolt heads and this works great to make a level platform for the calibration. Not my worst idea this week...

    P3A compass calibration error

    I had a problem calibrating the compass at the weekend. I'd gone to a spot I'd flown at before but the app displayed a compass error and prompted me to recalibrate. I had umpteen goes at this, moving large distances between each attempt and eventually changed the battery as it had gone down to...

    Professional Raw Compass Numbers Out of Range?

    I'm concerned that my raw Compass Calibration numbers may be out of whack. Specifically the X and Z numbers, the Y and Mod values seem within range. I'm assuming normal number ranges for X, Y and Z are: + or - 300 Compass Mod range: 1400-1800 I know that Mod = square root of (X*X+Y*Y+Z*Z)...

    Phantom 1 wont takeoff after crash

    Hi everyone!! I had a bad experience some days ago with my phantom and it crashed :( It wasn't really high, around 3-4 meters, but it had a gimbal + a gopro so it was really heavy. The main frame had some marks, but overall it was looking good. I've removed the gimbal and the camera to test...

    Unstable flight following a compass error at take off over the ocean.

    Flight out of Viola Fields in Carpinteria, CA. This was the first flight that I experienced compass errors possibly due to railroad communications/antenna interference?? During compass errors, P3P went into ATTI mode automatically and flight was feeling really unstable. First sign of instability...

    Professional Gimble won't retain auto calibration on start up

    I installed new firmware last month and flew P3 with no problems. Downloaded new DJI Go app today for upgrade and upgraded new RC firmware. When I start the aircraft the gimble does not calibrate horizontal with the horizon. I recalibrated the IMU and auto calibrated the gimble after, but...

    Professional Gimbal freaked out mid-flight, now won't return to center...

    So the other day my gimbal freaked out mid-flight (unfortunately I wasn't recording so I don't have any video of this) and now it won't return to center. I have tried to reset to factory settings, and I've also done the IMU calibration- nothing helps. I can manually pull the gimbal to center...
