i have a phantom 3 standard that WILL NOT connect to the controller. i've tried everything. i give up. i'm not looking for things to try. i'm looking to find out what it might be worth as is. i have no idea. i don't want to mess with it any more. ready to cut my loses.

see it here: click here

hard to tell from the video but the light on the controller stays solid red. eventually the drone's front lights stay red (normal) and the rear flash yellow (signalling no connection to the remote)

even though there is no connection.......i can fly the drone with the remote. but cannot connect to the app so.....no telemetry or camera feed.

As Ian said don't quit, sometimes In his hobby there can be a lot of troubleshooting...have you turned off your home WIFI as that will interfere with your linking (found that out when I had My P3S.)

I agree don’t quit. Do what was suggested above. If that doesn’t work. I suggest shutting everything down. Remove battery. Get a new micro card format it as if you just bought the drone. Get the latest update for the unit and go from there. Even delete your old app on the phone or iPad and reinstall the app.

A bad circuit board above the camera/gimbal will cause this to happen. I have come across this several times.

Maybe a bad OFDM board. I had a P3P that had the same issue. Replaced the OFDM board and it connected up as normal.
