    Hi Guys,

    Could anyone help me please, Iv'e not long had my phantom vision plus v3 flown 2 times not problem and today i'm having problems with the camera, when i connect to my android phone now i'm only getting connection with my WIFI extender but its not opening the camera and also not telling me what satellites i have or any info from my phantom. just how much power my WIFI extender has. I do have full control from my handset with tilt on the gimble and it fly's OK
    I try to do a camera firmware update but nothing happen's no lights on the gimble?

    Regards
    Bryan

    I'm not clear as to what the details are. Your phone is or is not connecting to the WiFi extender (which in turn means you are/are not connecting to the Phantom)? If you are connecting, you are able to control certain functions and not others?

    Start with deleting the Phantom WiFi entry on the phone (unpair) and reconnect.

    Your symptoms are exactly what you get when the biggest of the gimbal cables is not seated properly.
    You may need a pair of bent tweezers to put it back properly

    But you get no actual readings from the Phantom itself? So it seems that your extender is not connecting to the Phantom?
