SOMETHING TO REMEMBER B4 FLYING Today I visited a close friend of mine who is a retired CSM of the Green Berets and I took him out and flew my Phantom 3 Standard for him, over his neighborhood, which he was surprised to see from 150 feet up. I use an iPAD Air 2 because of the size and it is easier for me to see. Initially, I took the P3S out, turned everything on and could not get the screen to register the P3S or get clearance to fly. I knew from past experience that the flight location was ideal and could not think, at first, what was the problem. Then I remembered my old days of flying a P2 and that anything metal on me or close to me would mess up the P2 and controller big time. I also remembered that I was wearing a brand new Timex watch that cost over a 100 bucks and does amazing things, so I took the watch off and put it in my Jeep. Then started all over again with the controller, P3S and iPad and it worked perfect. So I have no doubt in my mind that my watch was causing some major interference with the controller. The flight went perfect. Long story short, be DAMNED sure you are not wearing some high dollar watch or silver jewelry on your hands or wrists, especially a watch with GPS or other electronics.
