    I have the latest Phantom 2 installer running on on Win 8. No readings from the controller. After a while I get a message from the software to connect to the controller. I am trying to reset my compass.

    I have the P2 connected to a USB port.

    What do I do?

    I would power every thing off, including the computer.
    wait a few min.
    boot the computer.
    power up the controller, wait for 2 min
    then power up the phantom and wait 2 min
    Then start the application and see if it will see the controller.

    if not you might have to directly connect to the controller.

    you will need a USB mini not micro cable that is not very long.
    or use a powered USB hub.
    You will have to take the back cover off of the controller.
    there is a youtube video on this.
    Good luck.
