    Hi,

    I'm trying to find how often should I change the batteries in the controller?

    Thanks,

    I've noticed that when you leave your controller power on and don't touch it an alarm goes off after about 5 minures? When I download pic's or video to the phone it takes up to 15-20 minutes of leaving your wifi on to complete the transfer...and I always get that alarm after 4-5 minutes....

    I found this out yesterday. I was messing with my Phantom yesterday and someone showed up at the door. i was outside for about 20 minutes and when I came back in I heard this beeping noise. I followed the sound and found out it was my Tx. Turned it off/on to get it to stop. I was unware it did that.

    Its just a warning so you don't accidentally leave your transmitter powered on. My other RC controllers do that also.

    When I'm transferring over wifi... I spin the props off and turn off the controller... you really only need power on the phantom and repeater for the transfers.
