Greetings,
Just recived my Phantom 3 Pro, charged main battery then when tried to charge the controller i did not get the charging led indicator (moving led from left to right). Led's light up promptly then off. Had it connected overnight, still did not charge. I posted a short video on youtube showing the problem:


Hope anybody/support can help. Hate to have to return it and wait for new one to be available.

Maybe you are having a defective charger like mine before. Mine did not charge battery and controlller out of the box and got them replace from local dealer about a week after.

Two different leads-- maybe the controller lead is bad

I don't get it, you mean twisting the head around the port while plugged? I did that countless times with no result!

Confirmed - same thing here: charge main battery ok, controller not.

Solution: plug ALL the way in with a rather firm action, then turn/twist the connector until you see the little white led is on, then leave it there.
