    Hi Guys,

    I bought my drone last year and flew it a few times with no problems but just short flights as I am a beginner. It's been about 8 months since I last flew. I set it all up this morning to fly again and I could not get the app to connect to the drone. The drone will connect to the remote and fly but with no connection to the app or GPS so I get no picture from the camera.

    I know I'm doing something wrong and I'm sure the fix is simple but I read through the manual but could not find the problem.

    Help anyone?
    Thanks
    Shawn

    Thanks for the reply. I'm using an iPad3. It worked last November. It also worked then on my iPhone7. I was going to delete the DJIGO app and re-install it and see if that helps but open to other suggestions

    @NOLA Boater,
    Does your mobile device see the WiFi from the remote?
    And are you connected to it?

    Yes, it sees it in "Settings" and it appears to connect but I do not see the "Wifi" icon in the upper left corner of my iPad and I can't remember if I am supposed to. Couldn't find anything in the manual that talked about it.

    I would tell your iPad to forget the network, then reconnect and default pass I think 12341234. Should be on the back of your remote.

    You don't the Phantom powered on for this test.

    Do you think your getting connected?
    Try connecting to the remote with another device, even a computer.

    Even your iPad should show you what ip address is when you connected to the remote, if the remote is doing it job.

    My P3S it kind of toast, but I will check the connection with a Laptop to the remote when I get home. I'm sure I have tried it before and posted the answer here, in the last 6 months.:rolleyes:

    Crap, if you in a hurry, i had a SSID: Look above, I will start looking for the remote reset sequence, but I bet you got it memorized by know. Do you know what it is, all of my device can see it so far.

    So, both the iPhone 7, and a old HP laptop, win XP connected to the remote, in both cases the ip address it assigned to the connecting device was 192.168.1.20, the gateway is blank (Windows) the Router is blank (crApple).

    #1 If your get a Ip Address like above, then you are connected to the RC.
