    Hi guys
    First flight today for several months and I noticed the app has been updated.
    The phantom seems to be lagging when I press the apps buttons. It takes about 20secs to respond to me pressing photo/video record button, and take off slide is also lagging?? It's making it next to impossible to take photos and video. Is this a common issue with the latest app software? I haven't upgrade firmware on the phantom as I'm worried it will effect its performance, but am thinking this is what's needed?
    Thanks in advance
    Hugh

    It sounds like your mobile device is lagging. What kind of device are you using?

    Wouldn't have thought its the phone, given it worked fine before?

    iPhone 6 should have plenty of extra CPU power so no extra tweaking should not be required.

    Have you tried another known-good USB cable? All FW and apps up-to-date (or the same generation)?

    So I updated my phone and the firmware on the P3S. App working perfectly, but drones distance is woeful. Luckily it all works perfectly with the litchi app.
