    Just got the P3S out of the box. Opened Go app and now I'm watching the mobile device now for the past 10 min and it sits there saying "Activating". Any clue as to how long this takes or is it stuck???

    It's trying to connect with DJI via the Phantom Wi-Fi connection which obviously won't work. At the point where it's ready to connect with DJI disconnect from the Phantom & let the device connect to your cellular or home Wi-Fi, then reconnect to the Phantom Wi-Fi when instructed.

    Thanks DB! I got it to finally update and the I was in the middle of the firmware update and it failed. Whew....frustrating at times. Now, I'm trying to charge the RC and all I get is the green blinking light on the slide switch. I KNEW I should have stayed in college!!!
