Hi, I cannot get my Samsung Galaxy S6 Active to pair with the Phantom 3SE. If I hook up the wi-fi to the phantom it says it cannot link without a wi-fi connection for internet. I power on the controller, then the drone and open up the DJI Go app. it will not hook up. Please advise.

you do not need the interrnet to connect to the drone.  You do need the internet to update and activate the drone.  Is this right out of the box?

Yes, that is my understanding that need the internet. The drone is a refurbished model from Dji. So, yes. Fresh out of the box.

I even purchased a cable for the micro usb, I thought it might need the connection.

First power on the RC and the AC. After that start your mobiles WIFI and look for the SSID Phantom_3_xxxxx.

the usb connector on the RC is only for charging.  I recommend you download the owners manual from Dji.com

Thanks, WD9EON. I have downloaded the actual manual and going through the manual now. Thanks for your assistance. I'm going to try to establish the link again for the RC to the AC. Hopefully then maybe we can actually fly this drone.

I did as you mentioned. It still came up saying it needed an internet connection which did not make sense.

Thanks for the video. Though it was not flashing the lights as mentioned I did try this and I still have issues. I will try again after I charge the RC. I will advise.

Internet connection is not needed to control your P3SE system and the RC of your system is the router.
The message only says "no internet connection" ,don´t it do that ? If you fly your bird,then you need internet connection for what?

I managed to get the firmware update to download afterwatching a Dji video and reading the actual owners manual that I downloaded (thanks WD9EON). Thanks for all your inputs and suggestions. Much appreciated.
