    Hi
    I’m new to the board & this might appear to be a bit of a dumb question.
    I have a Phantom 2 with a Zenmuse H3 3D GoPro Gimbal & GoPro 3+.
    I have been trying to get the controller in FCC mode to extend the range, I’ve turned the bottom screw all the way to the right (as the videos say) but the controller does NOT beep & the LED light is red, not green.
    My question is having turned the bottom adjuster all the ways to the right will it now be in FCC Mod? & will the range now be extended?
    As I have no way of confirming it, can anyone tell me the answer please.
    I’ve seen in other posts on here that the Phantom 2 controller dose not beep anyway, so I’m more than a bit confused.
    Thanks

    It probably is in FCC. Plug it in the assistant software and it will show you, if still showing on CE change it there too.

    CE/FCC mode is only a feature of the 5.8ghz transmitter (FC40, P2V, P2V+), not the 2.4ghz P2. That bottom pot has been in the Phantom controllers from the very beginning, but it seems it has never done anything on them...

    Ok Thanks ELGuano That explains things, will I have affected anything by turning the bottom pot all the way to the right?

    Not that I'm aware of, but again that's cause nobody knows what (if anything) it does!

    I thought it controlled the chick magnet.

    That's what ElGuano is saying, it's obviously non-functional :lol:
