    Hi PP,

    This might be a silly question. So, what will happened if I exit out the Go Apps while flying? For example, if some one calls me and I answer the phone or someone text me? I have Iphone fyi.....Thanks and appreciated for any comments.

    I've had it happen. Sometimes I have to shut my controller off to reconnect to the app... kind of buggy, but I always do get it to reconnect.

    Getting phone calls on your device is a nuisance if you are in a critical point of your flight but it's easy to put your phone in airplane mode (how appropriate) for flying.
    But even if you lose the app during a phone call, you should still have full R/C control through your controller.

    Right -- since the remote controller controls your Phantom. You could even shut down the DJI GO app and still control your Phantom.

    I've flown with my tablet crashing out before. I just simply flipped it in return to home mode as quick as possible. I could have flown a while without it but I feel more comfortable knowing what the Phantom is seeing.
