Who did you buy it from? I would go there (if possible) and test every one they had until I found one that worked.

Apple. I'll be heading back there. Again.

Hmm, no-one at Apple is going to be able to test it for you before you take it out of the store. Those androgynous boy/girlies they have would not have a clue about testing it.

I've been following your blogs carefully and that sucks man. You should have tried the bird right there at the Apple Store before you left that's what I did.

Have they all been from the same store?  Maybe you should try somewhere else as it sounds like the ones shipped to that store might be from the same batch made on a Friday afternoon.

Sorry for that incomplete post. The first one I had to return because I got it on the wrong card an wanted to get one on my Amex. The other I sold and the guy said he had issues connecting it to his android phone. Then I bought another one for myself. I've had some horizon issued but I guess that's with all of them. I work at apple

I think I may have to go get my 4th bird sonar sensors at the bottom are not working on top of that when flying in GPS mode this bird seems to be flying very unstable even after all the  calibrations. I'm almost sacred to fly this thing at this point.

RE:- you update.......I had a similar with my P4 when I first got it. Trying to remember what I did but I think it was just a complete reboot of all, or perhaps sensor calibration using the assist App'. Either way it cleared and did not come back.

Dude i think its time you gave up...
To second i cannot believe Apple is so generous to keep switching out so many units for you.
Kinda cheeses me off as those of us that purchased directly from DJI do not have the luxury to keep exchanging a used product and walking away with a new one every five minutes.
I am starting to sniff some bs here.....

I'm sorry for your experience, it really seems to be a bad luck...  Right now you have to calibrate the sensors, the error should disappear

There are issues with almost every P4 out there, since it's a brand new product with brand new technology. I doubt your gonna find a "perfect" one, as I don't know that that exists right now. I understand returning it for MAJOR problems that affect the flight/filming of the aircraft, but 6 of them? Do you know the common issues with the P4 that are in the process of being fixed? Or have you had MAJOR problems with all 5 P4s? If so, that's just horrible luck my friend.

Hey i am all for you reporting your findings thats what this place is for sharing info, but like i mentioned You must be the only one on the entire forum community having this much grief and working on your 6th P4 this is very unfortunate.
I am truly shocked that Apple would keep exchanging this item for you this many times kudos to you as the rest of us that purchased directly from DJI will not have your luck with simple exchange everytime we recieve an error.
Apple in my opinion is not doing DJI any justice as those units all returned by you and others will likely be deemed as nothing wrong with them and now they are classified as used.. ultimately costing DJI in the long run..
But heh as long as the customer is happy.....Find it extremely rare and unfounded to think 6 units in a row to be defective and there are certainely abusers out there that are simply never happy.
