    I just took delivery on a Phantom 3 Standard. The controller has a mini-USB plug and my cell phone has a mini-USB plug, but the cable that's in the box is a mini-USB to standard USB. Do I need to go buy a mini-USB to mini-USB cable so I can use my phone to control it? Thank you.

    The P3S remote controller connects to your mobile device via Wi-Fi. No cable is needed.

    Check out the instructions that came with your P3S. They explain how to connect everything. You'll also want to download the Phantom manual from the DJI downloads page.

    The camera has a plastic cap over it, that doesn't seem to want to come off. Is there a trick for getting it off? I've twisted it this way and that, and I've tried to pull it straight off and it doesn't move at all? Thank you.

    Never mind! I just tried again and it came off.
