    :? So 50 % of the time when I turn on the transmitter to fly, I get this error on the app...
    All I do to clear the error is shut off the "smart" battery on the back of the Phantom, and turn it on again.... then the error goes away..
    My starting procedure is:

    1) Turn on Transmitter
    2) Turn on range extender
    3) Turn on Battery
    4) Open the app & connect the wifi, and open the app on my iPhone 5s

    I only get the error half of the flights... Its more annoying than anything, but I would hate to have my transmitter fail while flying...

    Any help would be great..... THX !!

    So the elephant in the room is asking: "Did you open your transmitter, connect its microUSB to RC Assistant, and calibrate it?"

    Or before that you could try a "soft" calibration by plugging the aircraft into Vision Assistant and calibrating there. If that doesn't get it then definitely time to visit the incognito pachyderm...
