    Today is my birthday and I just got an amazing gift , DJI Phantom 3 advanced. I was hoping to use my Iphone 5 when flying this drone but I keep getting an error when attempting to install the app saying the app is not compatible with my iphone. The ios is 8.41(12H321) . Anyone have any suggestions??

    The iPhone 5 is not compatible. You need an Apple device with at least an A7 or A8 processor.

    Welcome to the forum, Tony, and Happy Birthday!

    The iPhone 5s does run the DJI Go app. I've found it's pretty hard to see all the features on such a small display though. If you're an Apple guy, the mini 2 or 3 will work, or get the Air 2. They should have wifi and cellular capability for GPS. Those on here with the Air 2 are very happy with their display.

    Good luck with your new bird. Take some time to read the manual before you fly.

    There is certainly a learning curve so do read up in manual and forums. Don't be the guy that crashes on the first outing. Good luck.

    I just got the P3S for my bday last week. Patience will be your only friend. Due to the product being too new to have the bugs worked out.
