    I want to check if my USB port is really faulty. Brain gone rusty so thought I would ask a question.
    On my old P2 I could connect my controller to my PC and test the sticks etc. Can you do the same or similar on the 300A controller for a P3?
    I just want to see if my P3 controller talks to the PC.

    No. What's wrong with your remote controller?

    You were right about the P2.

    Now you have to plug your tablet / phone into the RC and you can do a stick calibration etc. through the go app.

    Transmitter talks to the P3 fine - I could fly it if I wanted to responds to everything but I can''t get my tablet or phone to connect. Not showing anything just greyed out. TrĂ­ed different cables and everything. I suspect the USB is faulty. I do get the noise when I plug in though.

    It's probably not faulty then. Did you check if your device is setup to charge when the USB cable is connected?

    Do you have USB debugging enabled?
