Hi Guys,

I have been following the forum for a few days now, some good reading here.

I just received my P3S today, did all that was needed, I think. Message that comes up on DJI GO is "RC link lost". I get live image on my IPhone, but no rc link to the aircraft. Please help, only a few hairs left on my head.

Did you try relinking your remote controller?

You have the RC turned on, right?

I would attempt to bind (or re-bind, as the case may be), the aircraft to the remote control.

Another possibility, something I've experienced, is that one of the multi-pin cables that connects the camera/gimbal platform to the aircraft may be slightly loose, even if it does not appear to be. Push the cables in gently but firmly with a fingernail or paperclip, being careful to exert pressure only on the white plastic connectors, not on any part of the cables.

Thanks, msinger and Bigbells. I found the video on re-linking, got it to work.

Will try it out tomorrow, hopefully my first flight goes well.
Welcome to the Forum!
Glad you got it working, take a look at msingers help web sight.

Quite correct, Rod.

Can anyone tell me if there is a max size to the SD card that you can put in the P3S? I bought a 32G card today and it doesn't work. It is a SANDisk, not sure if it is faulty or if it is maybe too big for the system.

Please help...
