I have a MPP. There is an annoying issue that is making my drone almost unusable and I was hoping someone here could help please.

I’m running latest software, IPhone 7+ etc.

The phone keeps disconnecting mid-flight. The remote still works. The only thing that seems to reconnect it is when I unplug the connecting cable and reconnect mid flight. Even then it’s sometimes drops out again.

I’ve read numerous posts and tried (costly):
New SD cards
New connector cable
New IPhone
Different updates / backdated
Cleared caches etc.

Any thoughts? Driving me crazy

Are you using the side port or the bottom port? When I switched all my problems ended. Try the bottom USB port.

I started using the bottom port sometime ago and have had no worries. I can better fit my iphone 8 on the controller.

Just reporting back on this thread.

I have tried the bypass cables and that hasn’t worked either.

I just don’t use the drone much anymore as there is always a niggly issue.

I’m very reluctant to upgrade to the new MP2 eithergiven all of the issues with MPP considering how expensive the devices are. It’s just to expensive versus the risk.

Have you done a hard reset on the phone lately?
Do you have enough free resources on the phone?
Are you shutting off all apps (social media, email, messaging, etc.) before you fly?
Have you tried running the phone in airplane mode?
Can you try a different phone?
