    P3S---change control?

    Hi all, this is my first entry in this forum and I hope you can help me. I am not comfortable with the control of the P3S. Therefore I would like to change it. The left control stick should be up and down and flying left and right. The right control stick should be flying forwards, backwards...

    Litchi App & RTH Failsafe

    Following a recommendation I am considering buying the litchi app, installing it on my Samsung Galaxy S7, and flying my modified Phantom 3 Standard in VR FPV. My main concern is this. My flying environment is typically quite less than ideal for signal continuity. Environment is plagued by...

    P3S, RC stuck on FW 1.7.90, CANNOT UPDATE, STUCK ON 1.7.90

    Hi guys, I never once had a problem with my P3S up until its recent 1.9.20 update. I updated via wifi and everything seemed to check out ok. After updating I tried to do a flight but I could not get the AC to connect to the remote. Link indicator lights were both red on the AC and the RC. Tried...

    New Drone Law

    Hi everyone, Our Village Board is proposing a new drone law that prohibits take offs/landings and any control of a drone from all Village property. This means parks, streets, sidewalks etc. They also propose a 1 mile complete prohibition around any designated “special events” of 200 people or...

    Litchi flight

    Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I planned a half mile Litchi loop to check out a building in the middle of the woods (I saw it on Google maps) and didn’t know what it was. I took off, then started the mission. All went as expected for a few minutes, then suddenly, my P3S returned home, having...

    Ribbon cable disconnected in remote

    Purchased used P4 yesterday. Got it home to hear something rattling in remote control. I was concerned it might be something metallic, possible shorting out something expensive so bit the bullet and took the back off the remote. I removed the (non-threatening - of course!) black nylon plastic...

    Spotlight Interference...

    So I was shooting some video of the fire works in our little town. I was careful to not fly over the crowd, had in line of sight at all times, and got some great shots of the fire works from about 1300 ft AGL. Everything went great, started to come back to the home point and someone lit up the...

    No Justification for Night Flying Restriction

    The Night Flying Restriction has nothing to do with Safety. It's all about control and accountability. We should also condemn DJI for rolling over on all these nonsense rules and helping the FAA by the limitations they place within the software. We have all been found guilty before any crime has...

    P4 Has reached Max Speed

    So, I was flying last night at the beach and I flew through a "natural bridge" created by years of errosion. Going from beach to ocean side was no problem, but coming back thru from ocean side my P4 stopped - like there was an obstruction- so I grabbed it while it was hovering, with no hands on...

    Standard Indoor Mode for the P3?

    Just got my P3 Standard for Christmas and I want to fly it indoor. I just want to get it off the ground 4 ft., hover above the take off point, then return to its launch location. I tried to do this but I believe it was trying to follow GPS and it was maintaining the 4 feet but moving around the...

    Dangerous behaviour of my new p4

    Bought yesterday a new p4 and finally got to fly it today. Calibrated the compass and IMU (firmwares up to date according the app) and the whole first flight in beginner mode went well except a little twitching of the bird while steering with the right stick. This did not bother me since i hadd...

    Standard Is it possible to control a DJI Phantom 3 from Ubuntu with ROS?

    Hey! I'm a newbie in DJI Phantom and I asked this question in stackoverflow but apparently they didn't like it and thumbed down. So I decided to try asking you directly: I wanted to control my DJI Phantom 3 from ROS in Ubuntu with the data obtained from the IMU and video camera, but I don't...

    Can I Do This in RTH Mode?

    The past couple of flights, I used RTH (Smart RTH) so my P4 could fly home. However, both times, it came in too hot and bounced a bit on touchdown. It didn't flip over or break anything (as seen at the end of this video). As a new drone pilot, how can I take control of the aircraft at 3 meters...

    Sudden Erratic Flight

    Hi, While flying today, my Phantom 4 went from hovering to flying in somewhat fast and erratic, wide circles, bank heavily as it flew. It really took me by surprise because it's been rock solid up until now. The winds on the ground were calm, but I was flying close to 300 feet so it's possible...

    P4 Drops 8-10ft when Braking?

    I've seen people complain about not stopping level but losing 8-10 feet in altitude when braking. . . . but I cannot find where I commented on this topic before. I've got a few hours in low level heli flight Bell206 Kiowa Twin Huey. This reaction seems normal to me given all the aerodynamics...
