    Hey all. First post here. New owner of a p3 pro. I just unboxed and started to go through stuff. I noticed the controller only has a mini USB port. I thought they had both? What's going on here? Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Howdy and welcome! Nope, just the one USB. You can order a new controller port with the micro HDMI port.

    Should be a standard USB port.

    That's odd. This is what my P3P controller looks like

  7. I just got my P3P two weeks ago and my R/C has a large USB port and a small USB port both. Do I have the most current model or an old model?
     
  8. Mine looks like Adam H R/C photo

    1 Charge Tx read charge batt read more, hope i don't get you angry but it is a very good advice
    Happy Flying

    I have been around here a while, and never saw a P3P with that particular radio... Unless this is something new, I believe that in house
    Somebody packed the wrong radio, in your kit.

    What YOU have is a P3 4K, NOT P3Pro. Check the badge on front of Phantom!

    Yes, a Phantom 4K. That would make better sense...

    That is a phantom P3 4K controller, it does not use a usb port it uses wifi for connection between the controller to the phone/pad.

    Haha phew!!! That's a relief. It is a 4k sorry my bad. I downloaded a manual online and have watched numerous videos while waiting on my drone to arrive. Guess I missed that important detail, sorry guys. I was getting worried because I bought it on Amazon, not from DJI.. Thanks for the quick replies!

    This is the controller for the P34K not the P3 Pro.
