    Has anyone experience something like this before?

    Was taking photos as normal, then for some unknown reason the camera preview when black. The range extended was fully charged and after it went black I landed so they Phantom was next to me. The rest of the app worked fine. I even took a photo and then checked and the photo was normal. Only the preview screen was black. Took 3 resets of phantom, app, controller and range extended until the preview return.

    That used to happen to me then I sent mine in and they replaced everything... Seems good so far Call dji and ask for an RMA

    If it happens more than once in a while and it needs full resets rather than just backing out of the app and opening it again then it probably is time to talk to your dealer/DJI...

    i have had this happen once or twice on an iphone 4. remedied by quitting the app and removing it from the 'history' of previous apps, then re-starting the app. this worked every time. i am not complaining because dji does not support the iphone 4.
