I didn't know about the activation process. It never came up when I setup the phantom and check to see if it was working on the Nexus. I left home and drove to an open area. I could not get the **** thing to lift off. It kept giving me an error stating it needs to be activated. I then closed the pilot app and restarted. Sure enough it asked me to activate. I went through the steps and then it said cannot activate because no internet. Man I was pissed. Why did DJI do this? Why activate your drone first?
