    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...

    Trouble with OnePlus 5

    Hi, I've flown my Phantom 3 Standard just fine since I got it in February. I flew with my OnePlus 3T, and it worked perfectly with my phone. I have since gotten a OnePlus 5, and I have had severe connection issues with my Standard. It still works fine flying with my iPad, but with the OP5 it...

    It just flew away! - <correction> it didn't fly away at all.

    I am an experienced pilot with hundreds of flight hours and several drones including the P4 and Mavic Pro. I am not asking for advice but merely telling the story for your own information. I was in beginner mode for a quick photo shoot over a marina. After a few minutes of good flight, the...

    HDMI module

    I have tried to install an HDMI module to my 3Pro controller type GL 300 C. First one lasted one flight before it lost contact, the second one has done just the same. Checked all the contacts along the way, all ribbon cables firmly in, but controller still disconnected. Tried it on an Ipad, and...

    Did my Phantom 4 Pro Suddenly Brick During Flight?

    Hey everyone. I'm new, and I'm screwed. I was flying my work's P4Pro yesterday on Sport Mode, and it suddenly lost all connection. I'm new to flying, but I've flown enough to have noticed that this was different: usually when I lose signal, it goes in and out and is usually corrected within a...

    Standard Losing Video Connection

    Hi guys, So the second problem I've run into whilst flying my new Phantom 3 Standard. Last night I felt game enough to go higher than I have gone yet (only about 20 metres before this) So I flew in the same spot I have the last 3 times with no issues, and brought it up to about 50 metres...

    Don't fly without a tracker on board.....

    Flyaways do happen..... Regardless of system failure or pilot error, many will find themselves experiencing that sinking feeling when your Phantom drifts off on its own. Most commercial pilots use our Marco Polo trackers on every job. Watch our video at www.UAVfind.com and see the Marco Polo...

    Hey DJI: Easy solution to most crashes

    I've been reading a lot on this forum and others. To me, the most common sources of crashes are: actually hitting something due to pilot error and return to home crashes. I'd like to address this second category because there is a very easy solution to it, that can be done via software...

    Phantom 4 Lost Range, Never RTH

    I was out flying my Phantom 4 last night and got to around 2000 feet away with 80% percent battery. At this point it lost connection and I assumed it would automatically RTH. After waiting for a while it never returned and I got no more video feed. What I have read is that it possibly got stuck...
