My DJI Phantom 4 is getting a "Transmission Image Lost" message. Also, "Processor is critically over heating" message. What is wrong?

Many devices (incl my iPad mini) overheat especially in direct sun. Get out of the heat or the device will shut down. You should still retain control vlos. Or RTH.
The cpu may also be overworked by other apps running in the background. Always try to shutdown unused apps while flying.

It's the drone processor. When I take the battery out I can feel the heat on each side of the battery enclosure. I don't hear a fan turning on. On start up, it's ok. After about 3 minutes flight time I get these messages. the big allow thing is the heat sink.

No. I don't hear a fan turning on.
You might have to drop gimble assembly which is pretty easy to do and check if fan stuck or needs new one,,might have unplugged a bit from the board,

I use a P4p V1 for much of my commercial work, just another tool that gives so much production value for a small price. No more flying in helicopters for me.
