    Me and my brother-in-law both have phantom 3 standard drones. We were thinking it'd be cool to set up a really long way-point mission with litchi; a mission so long that it would have to be a one-way flight. In order to do this, we thought it'd be great if we could make our 2 controllers operate the same drone so that one of us could perform the take off, and the other one could be at the end of the mission to perform the landing. Anyone know how we could get our controllers to operate the same drone?

    Thanks

    Casson.

    No it can't be done. You can only link one controller at a time.

    The aircraft & controller are "bound" so that another controller can't accidentally "shoot yours down" which is pretty much a thing of the past now.

    With other systems (Inspire for example) you use dual controllers but only ONE controller flies the aircraft. The other one is bound to the primary controller and only controls the camera.
