    I can never remember the turn on order.

    Yesterday I turned the controller on, then the app, then the P3.

    It told me to calculate the IMU. I closed the app and reopened it and all seemed to be fine.

    I guess I need to turn the RC, then P3, then the app? Seems kinda silly.

    The important detail is .. turn on your Phantom last.

    Always turn on the battery in the quad last. If not it may think it lost controller and do the RTH function. Doesn't make any difference when you turn on the app but it does need to see that all is connected.

    I've always turned my Phantom on first, buth V+ and A without problem. Never considered it might try to RTH, but after a few hundred flights combined, neither have tried.
