What kind of noise is it making? is it when the blades start up or when you power on the unit..... any more info will help on the Noise issue.
For the connection what is your startup process? Do you start the remote, then the Drone.
Fly on!

What Phantom do you have? The RC and A/C must be on to use the simulator.

I have the Phantom 3 Pro , of course both are turn on RC & AC .


ok now the noise of the Aircraft is gone ,but now I have an error message on the  RC screen ;

                                             Simulator  failure
                Simulator  is only available when connected to the aircraft .Turn on the aircraft and check the connection .

But I have the RC connected to the Tablet already , how can connect  the simulator  to the aircraft at the same time ,via the white cable ??

thank you for your help .

I believe what is meant by the RC connected to the A/C is that the RC is linked (binded) to the A/C. Yes the RC is connected to your tablet, but is it linked to the A/C?

You don't seem to understand that the drone must be turned on when using the simulator.  Do a normal turn on procedure.  Device, RC, drone.  Do not START the drone, just turn it on.  Then you can use the simulator.  Yes, it is dumb having to have the drone turned on also (why waste the battery), but that's the way it works.

The noise you hear is the cooling fan inside the P3 and another fan on the gimbal.

Can you please confirm what model tablet you are using? In addition, are you just trying to connect to the mobile device or are you still trying to split the screen via HDMI as well?

Forget about the simulator and connecting to the tv for a mo.
If you try to use your P3 as if you are going to fly,does everything work together, ie fly.? Do your get your camera image on the tablet.?
If it does then your Rc is binded wth your Ac.
If the motors respond to stick movement but no camera image, then you must turn on debugging in your tablet settings.
Now try the simulator using your tablet as the screen. Does that work ok.?

The simulator would not work properly via the HDMI output, you can only use the USB connection via your mobile device. Again, please ensure that USB Debugging is enabled which is found under developer options and that the USB connection is set to MTP mode. Once those are enabled, you would be able to connect to the app and the simulator.

In regards to the mobile device you are using, I'm concerned you may run into some performance issues, since you would need a minimum of 2 GB of RAM to properly run the GO app.

Is your P3 New? The P3 range doesnt have a HDMI port as standard. The HDMI module has to be fitted after purchase. If yours has it fitted already , then i would check the connections to it.

As it was stated, you are going to need a better tablet with more memory on board. The tablet you have does not meet the minimum requirements to run the app.

I have to agree with the earlier message... Clearly there are some basic facts about the drone and even about the tablet you use that you don't know at all.
All these things are clearly explained in the manuals of your drone and your tablet.
This forum is meant for people who have read and followed all the instructions in the manuals and still have problems.
So, please read, read a second and third time both the manuals of your drone and your tablet and you won't neeed to 'lose patience' anymore.

The minimum requirement was provided on post #17. You can try to salvage a connection from this device by checking the following:
For most Android devices, Developer settings are normally under some sort of General settings. As for USB settings, the quickest way I've noticed to get to USB settings is to tap on the USB icon that appears when your mobile device recognizes a connection. You would need to refer to your tablet's manual in case you still cannot find it, as Android devices do have these settings available.

If those are set correctly, then you would try replacing the USB cable to make sure that's working properly. If you still cannot connect, then you would want to try a different mobile device.

Normally to get into the developer options you need to go to settings/about device/start tapping build number until is says you are now a developer. After that go back into settings and you will see developer options. This is where you will turn on USB debugging.
