    I just got my P3 out of the box and followed all of the instructions. However, my DJI app is not giving me a video signal and it says "Disconnected". I assembled it indoors and took it outside afterward. I know nothing about this system. This is my first rodeo. Any ideas?

    Did you update the firmware?

    Do you have your phone/tablet connected to the USB Port on the remote controller?

    I'm getting mine Friday and am extremely nervous about cranking it up. I've heard so many posts of disaster and FW issues.
    Oh well,

    lol no i mean where have you seen so many posts about disasters? 99% of them on here have been debunked, so just curious.

    Oh, I see. Many are from this site , outlining problems and many from the DJI's forum site.
    I cannot saw one way or the other if they are valid stories. It just makes me nervous.
    These things are from a massive production line and I'd think if there were specific issues, there would be a thousands of same issues, not just a couple here and there. I'll know Friday.

    I was about to storm over to my computer and post that my iPhone 6 was NOT connecting to my Phantom 3 Pro when I realized that I was plugging in the OTHER lightning cable that is sitting on my counter next to my controller and not the lightning cable that is actually plugged in to the controller! :)
    I had even rebooted the P3 and the remote...
    Who has two thumbs and sometimes does stupid things???
