I am a retired mechanical / electrical engineer and work for a charitable organization that does pack-ups of the left-overs from estate sales for sale in our Thrift Store. I recently acquired several "partial" DJI Phantom 3 Standards from a sale, thinking that I could reassemble the carcasses...
So I began to use UAV Forecast to plan my flights and I noticed that it by default recommends that you have at least 9 GPS satellites that are visible and to be locked on to at least 12 GPS satellites. I am curious if people that fly the Phantom 3 Standard abide by the guide line or do you all...
So I just bought a used phantom 3 standard and I have been using a 64 gb SD card with it. However sometimes when I fly it says there is no card installed in the camera even though there is. But other times I have no problem. Is this a problem any one else has encountered?
I am wanting to get a used ipad to use with my phantom 3 standard as I prefer the bigger screen when flying. So I am curious, what is the oldest model ipad one can use. When I used an old iphone 5s running 12.5.4 the connection between the phone and the drone was to sporadic to work while when I...
I crashed my Phantom 3 Standard and had to replace a damaged yaw arm and the ribbon cable.
Now when I power on the drone the gimbal doesn't move at all, I can't control it with the controller.
I repaired the yaw arm and replaced the ribbon cable with a knock off ribbon at first and had this...
Hi, my I have just dug out my Phantom 3 Standard, and it is on firmware 1.0.14+. When I open DJI GO, it tells me I need a firmware update, whenever I try to do it, it always says no SD card. I have tried formatting it as Fat32, buying an entirely compatible Sandisk 64GB sd formatted as exFat...
Apologies for another magic power thread but I am having some issues.
I am on firmware 1.9.20 but I cannot use the magic powers mod. I have drilled down and worked out that I cannot telnet into the drone.
I can FTP but not telnet. I'm guessing this is something put in by DJI but does anyone...
Hi I have searched but couldn't find anything relevant (also I'm new here),
So I had my Phantom 3 standard in the cupboard for maybe a year without flying. I went to fly it yesterday said it needed IMU calibration so tried to do that and it didn't work it kept failing at 2%.
I saw you can fix...
hi guys, i'm new to this forum and i'm doing some research to decide wheather i'll buy a phantom 3a and mod it to be better(like changing it's motors, or adding some sensors, or even making the phavic conversion kit) or buy the 3pro/4 and just change it to phavic(for those who don't know what...
I have had my phantom 3 standard now for 3 years. I have used it to do a few small scale real estate jobs but other than that I make YouTube videos with it.
I am wondering what’s a good upgrade that would not completely break the bank. And if it would brake the bank Explain why it is worth it
I have made some modifications in the Phantom, because of a project of mine. I removed the camera and put new legs (don't know if it is the correct word). Everything was going well, nothing went wrong with the drone. But last Thursday (18/07), I tried to download the log files...
Hey guys. I was hoping you guys could give this flight log a look and tell me what you think. At the end of the flight I was watching the drone and missed the on screen motor overloaded messages. I didn't realize something was wrong until the lights started flashing red signifying a landing. I...
A personal best range and distance that was achieved a few weeks ago.
This was a waypoint mission using Litchi.
Farthest waypoint was 3.5 miles or 5.7 km away.
Total distance was 7 miles or 11.4 km or 37,400 ft.
Filmed this just before last Christmas.
A smooth gentle flight (with music) to check out a local wind turbine.
Sun very low in the sky but doesn't spoil it too much.
My intermittent problems with a jerky gimbal were already happening BEFORE this mission.
Enjoy the landing :oops:
This brief fireworks display was the first time that me and my son had tried flying at night.
The display didn't last as long as we had hoped, although we did miss the first minute or so.
No background soundtrack on this one - unusually for a drone video we actually have the sound of the...
I'm asking for some help here because I'm losing my mind with frustration at what has happened to my drone. Let me explain.
I'm a Phantom 3 Standard owner. I'm also a full time student, so this was a fairly large purchase and something I put a lot of time and research into. I...
My name is Gareth
I have just purchased a used Phantom 3 standard from a friend who got it in a deal for a Team Associated R/C 1/8th scale buggy. so I'm new to flying a drone though I've only flown this particular drone twice.
It seems that the previous owner though has modified...
I have a Phantom 3 Standard and I'm having problems with the controller.
- I can connect my tablet to the controller through wifi
- I can see the video from the camera on my tablet
- I can control the camera gimbal from the tablet
Problem - I cannot control the drone or camera gimbal from the...
