Hi, just got started with this drone flying. Just received a Phantom 3 Advanced that was brand new sitting in a closet since it was bought. I have it configured to the best of my knowledge and hope to learn a lot about everything pertaining to its operation. I have just registered it at the FAA site and got myself a certificate. By the way, I am a senior who did some RC flying as a Teen.
I have ran in to an issue. The date is correct, but the time is several hours behind. I have loaded all the latest firmware etc. as found on DJI site. I am using an current iPad 7th gen with it.

App: version 3.1.64
Aircraft: version 1.4.10
Remote Controller: version 1.4.30
Basic fly safe database: version 0100.01.09

Everything else appears to be fine so far and I may trouble you guys with more questions later and discuss my experiences. This looks to be a great place to be, so thanks for having me lurk about.
Regards,
Aviman

Happy and safe flying a p3 is a great bird to learn on as parts batteries and accessories are much cheaper than some of the newer dji stuff.

As I have told others, let us know where you live and you might find an experienced pilot willing to go out with you and help you get started, and how to avoid the stupid mistakes we all made, like getting your drone stuck in a tree.
