Hi guys
Installed GS software on my Ipad and downlink on my P2 it works so far but what to do if i go where there is no wifi connection how do I save the area map to use it in such case?
Since I have GS downlink installed can I use LITCHI instead DJI Ground Station?

Cache the map area you want to use ahead of time. Just open ground station and scroll to the area you want and let it download. It should then be available offline.

My phantom flew away today. Hit return to home and it at least made it back long enough so that I could see it. It kept hovering several hundred metres up in the air about 300 metres away from the home point. Not very reassuring.

hi guys i got an odd question. i took my phantom 2 out for some fun flying. turned everything on as normal popper her up then decided to reset the compos to my new location. set her down did the DJI dance, powered everything down and turned everything back on. after that point i could not arm the motors. tried like 6 times and finally gave up. i always got to the 5 green fast flashes then a solid green. jumped on line and went threw the manual, and found out how to rebind the 2 together. poof she armed as normal. went back in and installed my new bestum areal prop guards and went back out for some more flying. again nothing. rebound her and poof she flew. to make a long story short i have to rebind here every time i turn her on.

the DJI dance is if im correct is 5 cycles of the right switch.
spin clockwise 1 revolution.
yellow lights
pick up with landing gear sticking away from me nose up.
spin clockwise 1 revolution.
green lights.

what or where did i go wrong. was a cool day mid 40's.

i guess i should do all the updates to her now.

Are you anywhere near a No-Fly zone? Could that be the issue, possibly?

Part of my thinking is that the first hint of trouble was a dip to the right. Whereas each motor has its own ESC, manufacturing differences could have had one esc/motor unit fail before it affected the others.

Just my $.02 I'd be curious to find out what happened to you myself, so that it doesn't happen to me. You were shooting a beautiful video, I have to say.

Cold weather do affect battey flight time I agree to Bob

no no fly zone within over 30 miles. flew a total of like 20 min. still had 1.5 bars left. i say 1.5 because the second was flashing.

started out fine then redid my compos, but did it wrong, and from that point on i had to rebind to arm the motors. flew fine, but the gps hold seemed off. lots of drift. im going out later and do a compos calibration, and see what happens. ill report back after flight.

man i need more batteries. 2 just is no enough.

Isn't it that while calibrating compas you turn counter clock wise ?
