Dear All !

I use a P3 standard, with 1.6.80 firmware, the App are upadated.

My problem :

- Yesterday, the range with the wifi was really bad ... after 20 meters, No signal ..  return to home ..
- I've retart the airplane, but still the same after few meters.
- The same problem on litchi app and Dji Go.

The flight was in mountains, no house, no antenna near ...

Questions :

- Is it possible to change the wifi channel on the P3 std ?
- How can I fix this "poor" signal ?

Thank you all !

Hi Remi,
i have the same issue, as thousand of other users, and at the moment simple users like us can't fix this issue.
I send my p3s back hoping dji will fix it, but it seems caused by the new firmware and i suppose that until dji realease a new firmware we are stucked in this situation.

I think we can't change wifi channel but i am not sure.

have the same issue, so far from reading here it seems that the last firmware update is what caused this.
I'm new to DJI, so not sure how it was before the last update...

i am new too but before the last update i push mi p3s to 187 meters and i never lost signal. I didn't go farther because i was scared, but my p3s can go on. Signal was strong
Now after 20 meters i lost rc signal.
Only few users still fly as the previous version.
I suggest to send the p3s back, if they receive thousand of drone back they will check twice the new firmware

Hi, Remi, you can find a signal boosters or range boosters on Ebay, cost 20-30 dollars. Normally it increases the range for at least 30%. Though it's not much  currently, it's still useful after your plane is repaired.

You can try different combination of firmware of plane, RC and DJI Go app version.  Take a look at this, http://forum.dji.com/thread-54038-1-1.html

If it still doesn't work, contact DJI support.

to be honest I had the p3s it drove me insane with the range I was so disappointed I decided to sell it and now I have the P3A and im very much happy with it the dji light bridge tech is awesome ..
so my suggestion sell the p3s and get the p3a or p3p

just my 2cents

I purchased a Argtek range boosting aerial and the range is much much better now on my P3S. Well recommended.

I have a pair of P3 advanced, latest firmware on everything and I routinely fly almost a mile away.  I could go farther if I went higher to keep line of site.

I had the same problem. Using an older version of a DJI Go Application and downgrading the firmware on the aircraft seems to have fixed it much.

The Steps :
1. Download the firmware at http://phantomhelp.com/Mobile/Phantom-3-Standard/#FirmwareArchive and select the fw that you want .bin file format

2. Insert the file to sd card, outside folder, and must be the only one .bin file format

3. Turn on the RC and the drone without sd card until it connect (RC and Drone)

4. Connect to DJI GO App (to see downgrade status stay at front page of the app)

5. Insert the sd card. Then the downgrade process is starting and rear led will turn to yellow and there will be beep sound from the drone (it is normal). See at DJI GO app, there will be status bar show the downgrade process. If the rear led becomes green it means the process is complete, you also can see the succes notice at DJI GO App.

6. Restart the RC and Drone, connect DJI GO App, check the FW. Finish.


I hope it can help the issue of 1.6.80 firmware for Phantom 3 Standard


NOTE : DO IT WITH YOUR OWN RISK!
