    That is a known issue and DJI will fix it for free. It'll involved sending back your remote controller though.

    The remote controller is easy to open. You will most likely void the warranty on the remote controller if you choose to attempt the repair yourself though.

    Here's a video that shows how to open the remote controller:

    So much for a new/better batch of plastic injection molding.

    It's just a DJI knockoff. Costs more than the P3P and who knows if it will be any better? I'd stick with yours, or swap it for a new one and keep it and your accessories. Good luck.

    You think its a knock off i kinda thought that myself it looks alot like it.i emailed the support and asked them they said its not a knock off has their own software and not affiliated with dji what so ever .the last phantom professional i just sent back because of bad motor, i could use my galaxy tab 4 10.1 tablet with no issues. The p3pro i just got and did fw update i now can not use it because of lag .it doesn't take good video like the old one i had and it is pixely could that because of fw or just a bum bird

    Maybe ill stick with my p3pro the x star just kinda looks to much like the phantom. I asked the tech guy from autel if phantom props would fit the x star he said they would but are at different specs and are not recommended, even their starlink app resembles the go app and the final thing that makes me think that the companys are related is email from them asking if the ticket has been resolved just like dji customer service
