    Hey folks,

    So I just purchased a Phantom 3 professional at an auction, body is in mint shape but can tell it's had a crash(camera hanging by flex cable, but nothing visually broken) the receiver is mint as well. There were no real visible tears to the cable so I reconnected it by the magnetic mount, when I power up, I have 2 solid reds then rapidly flashing yellows and the gimbal doesn't move. I don't know where to go from here...any help would be appreciated!

    Rapidly flashing yellow means you aren't connected to the Radio Controller. You may need to bind it. See this video:

    Hey ryantrax,
    So I'm tinkering around with the controller right now and trying to connect with the P3P but when I launch DJI GO, I switch it to the correct model and when it connects it jumps back to P4...any thoughts?

    Is the firmware up to date?

    I tried to do the update via the app and it kept failing.

    Thank you, glad to join! I'm a noobe pilot and will most likely be reaching out to you folks for help.

    Cheers
