    Easy fix?

    Hey there, I was today up hiking in Iceland with my Phantom 3 Advanced. I was just about to bring the AC down on a flat spot, however before the AC could get there, the critical battery warning made the AC land in a bad spot, making it flip upside down, omstructing the motor and stopping. This...

    Weird behaviour P3 SE at landing and range

Change RTH height to 100m and I could now go over 30m... Next day (today) even with RTH at 100m it wouldn't...

    Pontoons/Floats Phantom Water Landing Gear

    i recently ran across these while investigating a set of r/c airplane pontoons to affix to my phantom... Anybody have anything like on their craft? Or know anybody? The thought of water anywhere near my drone makes me nervous, but if you're flying over water it seems like a great safety device...

    AMAZING autonomous landing from 207m

    While filming the balloon, I totally lost all contact with my P4P. Knowing the battery was low it needed to land. Taking off with sticks inner backwards I realize now I didn't set a home point. After having lost all control, Spike (how I named him) was on it's own. He landed on a dime.

    Landing Gear. Needed or over rated?

    I came across this you tube video for P3 landing gear. You tube link. Has one used this or something similar? I don't have much P3 flight time so I'm not certain if a landing gear is really needed. Thanks.

    descend and grab ?

    Hi, In some YouTube videos I see pilots descend their Phantom and let it hover at aprox. 5 ft over the ground, grab the landing support and cut the motors. As I'm going through the manual I understand you need to hold the left stick inside down together with the RTH button pressed. This seems...

    Dedicated PolarPro Landing Gear thread

    Hello folks, I hand catch most often when landing but I take off from the ground, different surfaces etc. and there is no helping the rubber padding getting dirty that way. One of the chores I really dislike is having to clean the rubber pads on my P4 each time I fly and before putting it away...

    Phantom 3 Advanced fell over on landing

    Hey guys, so I just got my Phantom 3 a few days ago and I just took it out in some light to heavy winds for the first time. So I took off just fine but then the phantom started drifting crazily so I panicked and sent the phantom to the ground I wasn't thinking and tried to turn the motors off...

    Dedicated Vaavud Anemometers thread

    Hello everyone - I am Tom. Today was a good day! I struggle with a major fear of taking off and flying my P4 in the wind. How do you gauge where the limit is? The Phantom can only do so much when flying in strong winds and could get carried away. So the other day I asked naively on these...

    "No signal" in app, Gimbal non-responsive, Drone Still flies after rough landing.

    Hey everyone. I was chasing a polar bear a few days ago when the wind picked up almost immediately (God love the ocean) and I could not fly back with the amount of battery I had left. After a while I gave up on trying to fly back and decided to "crash land" on the sea ice. I did it, went home...

    Motor Kill function didn't work at landing...

    Hi everyone. Twice tonight I tried to land and the typical "down and out" on the joysticks didn't kill the engine like it always has. What am I doing wrong? It's a P3A. DZ

    Unintelligent Orientation Control

    How many of us are able to fly a craft back, position over a suitable spot and land all while in an orientation other than looking straight at the battery LEDs? I have personally tried to develop this skill starting with low cost quads up through my P3P and I honestly just can't do it...
