    This is my first Phantom and I am excited to fly it but I cant calibrate the controller. It does not show up in the RC assistant or the Phantom Vision+ 2 assistant either and I cant figure out why? When I try and download the dji WIN driver installer it wont let me install? I am trying to install it directly from the dji site and it says its corrupt or invalid? My computer is running windows 7.

    I turn on the Phantom V2+ assistant then I go to basic and click RC. I turn on the controller and click basic then click RC. When I click start and move the sticks nothing happens? Do I need to turn on the wifi repeater also or just the controller connected with the usb cord? Please help?

    Thank you
    Dave

    So I have been messing with it and got it to calibrate using the dji rc system assistant. Is that all I need to do?

    Yes, that's it. Unless you're using the GoPro version of the P2, HD 3 or 4.
    You do have a P2V+?

    Go out and do a test flight. Just be sure to do pre flight inspection and warm up. Wait till you lock on to 8 sats or more befor take off! All switches up on the RC for GPS.

    Ok, well good luck on your venture. I am sure you will be fine. One thing to always remember is to recalibrate the compass at new locations. I am sure you understand this. You can You Tube this on what we call the DJI Dance. On compass calibrations. Happy Flying!
