    Hello, some times i fly my P3P using a SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB A tablet (android 5.0.2) but i can´t use the red arrow that indicates the drone direction, because this arrow always points the same direccion that points the map arrow no matter where the drone points.
    This cause that i loose the drone orientation.

    When i fly using the ipad3 mini i have not this problem.

    Please help.

    Thanks

    For some reason this is quite common with Samsung devices.
    You need to calibrate the internal compass in your tablet.
    Google will show you how to do that.

    Are the Red LED LIGHTS under the front (nose) motors supposed to stay Red normally? Are the back LEDs the only Aircraft Status Indicators?

    The front lights should always be red to indicate the direction your Phantom is pointing.
