    Buried at Sea. My Phantom 4 is at the Bottom of the Atlantic now

    I have/had a P4 that was gifted to me by my wife and kids 2 years ago. I was petrified to fly it, it costing so much... So I cut my teeth on a less expensive drone, then when I was a better pilot I began using the P4. I loved it, and I have some nice videos from it. But I haven't spent more than...

    Gimbal makes grinding noise after crash

    After a crash, two props were damaged, and one of the arms separated a bit. Gimbal makes a strange noise now. Please look at the short video and let me know what you think. The camera works fine. I am concerned with the rattling noise that it is making. Here is a link to a short video.

    Lost P4 Pro - disconnected during flight and battery died. Any hope?

    Hi everyone, I have a very unfortunate situation with my Phantom 4 Pro. This evening I was flying it about 1000m (distance) and 300m (altitude) over a forest when it lost the connection to my remote and iPad (I had previously flown it much further without any connection issues). At the time, the...

    I know, everyone is going to hate me for this, but I have a simple question. Why put the controls of your expensive investment in the hands of a third-party app called litchi with so many horror stories? DJI GO has its problems, but litchi seems to cause many fatal crashes. Everyone I know who...
