    so I went to use my P3A today at the PERFECT time for this specific shot I planned for and my controller is dead. No lights...nothing. It was working fine yesterday and I know it was at least 3/4 of the way charged so now I'm really worried that my unit is dead. Anyone have any suggestions?

    May be you didn't switch it off yesterday. It happens. Charge it for few hours and try again.

    If you are not with it or if you put it in the case and closed it you would not hear it.

    Ask me how I know........

    He's been spying on you through your window with his drone ;););)
    It's what we drone owners do isn't it? According to the media any ways

    Had the same thing happen to me... sorta..

    took my RC out of the case and know for a fact I turned it off prior to putting it into the case... looks like the neck strap got to the on/off button while in the case and discharged the RC...
    so.. I now watch where that neck strap is placed in the case...
