I have a S3 tablet that will connect with my P3S them 10 seconds later disconets, I'm new to drones. Is the tablet not enough or what? Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.

I have the same problem with my phantom four, I even bought all sorts of different cables and it just won’t link up, I think only Apple product work . Don’t waste your time and money trying to buy cables, they just don’t link up with android. .

Have you tried any other devices? And when you say the app says disconnected, what does the RC/AC say? You should have green on the controller and on the AC (above the camera). See any red?

I haven't looked at the light above the camera, I will do that next time. I just know it will be working, I can move the camera up and down and see it move on my tablet then the screen freezes and say's disconnected. the camera stills moves and i can still fly it but no camera.

So at least we know the AC/RC are paired and working. What I don't see is where a device with too few resources could disconnect but I could be wrong here. It sounds like you may be losing your wi-fi connection. Any number of things can knock out your wi-fi.

Is there another phone or tablet you can test?

Next time it happens take a look at your wi-fi and verify the P3 is connected or at least still selected.

Well, I took it for a short flight yesterday because it was a little bit windy and it worked great with the galaxy tab3, it seemed a little dark, is there any adjustments for camera brightness other then on the tablet. Just checking, again thanks for the help.

Check your camera settings. I would suggest turning on auto settings until you are comfortable with manual.
