Dave,
Thank you for your response. I just typed a long winded message and my iPad crashed.

Needless to say, removing my post was wrong.

WHAT THE PHANTOM 3 INSTRUCTIONS
DON’T TELL YOU

Before you decide to throw your Phantom 3 (P3) off the bridge and then follow it
by jumping in yourself, let me assure you that there is probably nothing wrong with
your P3 – except DJI’s miserably inept instructions.

True, there’s a bunch to do before you can fly it but given the 30 hours you’ve already
spent pulling out your hair without getting anywhere, another 45 minutes isn’t going
to kill ya.

FIRST AND FOREMOST:
Not just any cell phone or tablet will work.  I went through nightmare scenarios with
an AT&T ZTE and an LG Tablet before I reluctantly gave in and purchased a Google Nexus
9 – which, yes, is on the DJI compatible list.  Soon after, I was airborne.

SECONDLY:
Do not start until you have fully charged all batteries, including however many backups
you purchased for the P3, including the DJI Remote Controller itself and last but not least,
the monitoring device (cell phone or tablet, etc.)

THIRDLY:
At this writing, 20 August 2015, do NOT download the DJI P3 APP nor update the DJI P3
FIRMWARE through any venue but Google Play Store.  This safeguard will change in time
for sure, but for now it is the greatest assurance that both will download properly and,
more importantly, LOAD properly.

FOURTHLY:
THE DOWNLOADS:
1.   FIRMWARE DOWNLOAD:  (http://www.dji.com/product/phantom-3/download)

     a.   On the side of the P3 camera is an SD card. Push it  in gently and it will pop-out
          (spring load).  Remove it and insert it into your PC.  If you don’t have a corresponding
          receptacle in your PC you’ll have to purchase a MicroSDHC Card Adapter (Radio Shack,
          Best Buy, etc.). The SD card is inserted into this adapter and then the adapter
          itself is inserted into the corresponding receptacle of your PC.
     b.  Open the SD. Find the root directory.  Then download the DJI P3 FIRMWARE into
          this root directory.  The download is zipped and needs to be unzipped.  At one time when
          flying the P3 I kept getting the error message, “Camera overload.”  I had not
          unzipped the file yet.  After removing the SD card, unzipping the file and returning  it
          to the P3 camera, the message disappeared.  I don’t if this was just a coincidence, but
          the error message disappeared after that.
    c.   Once the FIRMWARE file is unzipped, return the SD card to the DJI P3 camera receptacle.

     a.  You'll  of course want to download the APP directly to your monitoring  
    device (cell phone, tablet, etc).  You will NOT be able to open
    this in most cases until you have performed a vital step on
    your device (cell phone, tablet) that is NOT mentioned
    anywhere in the DJI instructions (which a terrible instruction
    overall, some parts of which appear in the main guide and
    others which remain scattered over other pages and
    instructionals).  Commentary a side, this vital step involves
    debugging your cell phone/tablet/etc.  BEFORE IT WILL  
    ALLOW YOU TO OPEN THE DJI P3 APP.  I cannot say this is
    a requirement in all instances (all cellphones/tablets) but it is
    definitely a requirement in the case of the Google Nexus 9.  
b.  Debugging requires that you open the SETTINGS inthe   
    Nexus9 and selecting DEVELOPER OPTIONS. Scroll down and place
    a checkmark in the checkbox, USB DEBUGGING. Youwill be walked
    through a couple of other steps before this action can becompleted.

Congratulations!  You are now ready to fly, that is, you may now open the DJI P3
App which, until now (until the cell phone/tablet had been set up for debugging),
would not “see”nor open the App.

The App itself will now walk you through some preliminary setups of its own
to include the mysterious and elusive step called "activation".  Few steps remain.
Don’t get too anxious because you’re closer than you may think,
less than 3-5 minutes.

Pay close attention to the DJI P3 APP instructional, most especially calibrating
the GPS system so that, if lost in flight or someemergency should befall the P3,
it can return HOME by itself.  

Oh yes, and Happy Trails!

Hi,

I have just bought the DJI NAZA M Lite Flight Control Board and having some trouble. I have a Dx6i Spektrum Transmitter and Ar610 Reciever(PPM Reciever). I have plugged the my Aux 1 channel to my X1, Gear to U, Throttle to T and so on. One of my question is do I need the X2 for anything. Another Problem I have is when I plug my LED into the computer, it turns on and flashes green and stays greem, but when I turn on the NAZA-M Assistant Software(MAC OS X Version 10.9.5) the 2 indicators on the bottom says red and blue. I know red mean that it's not connected but I know it is. My Transmitter is Binded with my Reciever also. Another thing is what is how do I programm my Transmiter to configure correctly with the NAZA M-Lite. I been looking everywhere but found no answers. I been working on this for a while now. Most people have Dx6,Dx7 or Fatuba. There really isn't anything for the Dx6i. Please help.

Thanks Dave. I will make sure to contact the appropriate department and maybe having a permission issued if that's the case so at least official papers might be on my side.
If anyone from Turkey has a better knowledge, please , meanwhile feel free to contact me or reply to this message.
Many thanks in advance to all of you.

Try to vary the speed that you are switching the switch. It can be sensitive like that.

I am a brand new proud owner and pilot of a P3P.

Can someone please answer a couple of questions for me ?

1.)  I can't seem to get the "RTH" command to work ?   It lands, but it comes straight down where it is at the time, not where I took off from  ?

2.)  The Camera:
      Are the pictures and videos automatically saved on my iPhone 6 ?
      Are they automatically on the Micro SD Card, that I have to download to see ?
      I went to a "New Pilot Class" and the instructor said to make sure that I turn off the camera, before I turn off the copter, but I can't figure out how to turn off the camera ?
      I have stopped taking a video, is that what he meant by "Turning Off The Camera" ?

I really appreciate the help.

Thanks,

Brent

Hi Brent, welcome to the forum.

For your first question. The RTH is just landing because you are activating it close to where you are flying.
Try flying out over a field a good long ways and then try it. You need to be at least 20m away.

For your next question the pictures and video are only saved to the SD card in the camera on the Phantom. Not on your IPhone.
There is no off button on the camera. Your instructor was talking about stopping your recording of video before turning off the Phantom.

Please feel free to ask any questions. I would love to help.:D

Are you using a P3?

Have you checked the ribbon connector from your gimble to your bird it could be loose.
Power cycle everything, controller, Phantom, phone/tablet
Try leaving the P3 and RC turned on unplug the usb shut down the app replug Usb and restart app.
Try uninstalling the App and reinstalling it.
Try downgrading the firmware.

1) an easy one.  How will I know when my batter is fully charged.
2) my quick start guide says download the dpi pilot app which I can't find in the app store, I think I need the "go" app, can someone confirm

Yes, you do need the Go App.

You can check the battery levels in the Go App. Also if you want you can check 4 green leds on the battery.
