    Intermittent Battery Cell Error

    I have a Phantom 4, just the original not the advanced or pro I also have an iPhone 5s with ios 11 on it. (thought it would be worth mentioning in case this is the issue as I suspect.) Last night I put my battery on charge and it triggered overcharge protection so I took it off and put it in...

    DJI "NO FLY" is a SAFETY HAZARD!

    I went back to within 1 mile from an airport today with no props on to test with my P4P+ UNLOCK had been approved in June. I was inside and just outside the No-Fly 1 mile from the center of the airport (uncontrolled) It would not start. But it asked me to confirm the UNLOCK. I did and it still...

    UNLOCK NIGHTMARE!

    This dji unlock process is ridiculous and full of wasted time, duplication and unnecessary complication creating errors and more wasted time. They nearly destroyed my P4P+ and came very close to damaging badly it at the very least by it's idiotic "Ok your too near a NO-FLY zone I'm landing NOW"...

    Tripod Mode fails dues to "Mission Conflict"

    About every 10th time I use Tripod mode, as soon as I select tripod mode, I get a failure message citing a "Mission Conflict." The tripod mode actually doesn't fail, it activates and works correctly, but then refuses to exit tripod mode when the "stop" button is pressed. If the drone is far...

    GPS failed - lesson learned

    Hello everyone! Wanted to share an experience I had that surprised and scared me at the same time. The other day I had setup to shoot some video around Baltimore's Inner Harbor. This was going to be my first time flying out over water so I was taking my time getting setup. I did what I always...

    P4P gone. Alien abduction?

    Unhappy that my first post is is an obituary for my drone... Here is the story and the file. Sold my P4 for P4P in January. Many happy flights with no other incidents.

    Videos missing from SD card

    Today when I went to import footage from my SD card to my computer most of the footage I had filmed was missing. I filmed some stuff in the morning, crashed (nothing too serious I'm pretty sure, it was a short fall and didn't even break a propellor so I assumed it hadn't taken any damage, there...

    Good day, I am relatively new pilot with about 20 flights with Phantom 3 Professional latest firmware V01.08.0080. Was flying over a body of water at 60m no wind and when I started rolling softly to the left, the drone suddenly started falling and spinning uncontrollably straight into water...

    Advanced Parachute Failure from Cell Tower?

    I'm wondering if the parachute system I installed self deployed because of cell towers . The parachute is only supposed to deploy when the phantom flips to 80 degrees but I watched it open as I was hovering, panicking I tried to slowly lower it but that seemed to make the parachute shoot up and...

    Standard Problems regarding Phantom 3 Standard motor compatibility.

    I have owned this product for about 3 months now (Phantom 3 Standard), and now one of the motors on it is failing. I know the reasoning for this. It's because I used to have the prop guards on it for safety, but when I removed them, I screwed in the long screws on the motors. Only one motor...

    P3P drops from sky into Mississippi flood, flood wins

    ......but what happened? Never a hint of a problem, and a great trouble free craft for 26 consecutive flights. Normal successful calibration, normal startup, aircraft "safe to fly", GPS lock, takeoff, no significant weather to speak off. Flight was at about 20 ft off ground and moving forward...

    Eternal September and the Battery Question

    Shortly after Christmas, there are likely to be thousands of Phantoms of various persuasions firing up on batteries that have just come out of storage since manufacturing in China. Yes, The Fine Manual clearly states to charge everything first. No, lots of people aren't going to do that...

    Started a flight with battery fully charged. After about 2 minutes flying, the "battery critically low" warning sounded. Went into "return to home" mode but instead of flying to above the takeoff point before landing, the bird descended right where it was, encountering trees with catastrophic...

    Advanced P3A Gimbal Won't Initilize

    I have done a lot of successful flights, but today when I tried to power on, my gimbal would not stabilize. It appears it can't assume the horizontal position. It tries to initialize on a 45 degree angle, like something is broken. I don't know how anything broke as it flew successfully...

    Cracking the P3 crack

    I was thinking (being in manufacturing myself) there could be a few reasons for the cracking problem on the P3. - Flight fatigue and stress over time - Off Balance motor due to rotor damage But look at this, a FLIR image of a P3 after about 1 minute of hovering Heat buildup from the motor...

    Advanced Photo modes fail to change occasionally

    Hi all, When I switch from AEB to single shot and vice versa, the mode sometimes fails to change. The RC reacts as though it has changed (5 quick clicks when in AEB, for instance), but the camera only takes a single shot. Also, when I've switched to single shot from AEB, the RC click's once...
