    Welcome to Phantom Pilots! :)

    This works consistently for me:
    • Turn on the remote controller
    • Turn on the Phantom
    • Wait about 30 seconds
    • Start DJI GO

    I had the hardest time with connecting my phone via WiFi to my Standard RC, when at home The first time or two it went quick and easy, but later, it wouldn't connect.
    I found that it works just fine when I do as @msinger said. After turning on the RC, wait about 30 seconds to connect.
