    Hi all,

    Has anyone successfully calibrated the rc? When I try, it times out after a few minutes. I never get to click on finish, even though I have moved the sticks in all directions until the borders become solid lines. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Did you install firmware version 1.2.9 and the latest version of DJI GO?

    Here's an example showing how it should work:

    Hi Msinger, I saw your video. Basically when I have completed the two square and obtain the 100% with blue perimeter then move onto the gimbal, the line underneath the square . I am okay up to there. What I don't have is "tap to finish", I only see done, so I have done this 3 times and nothing happens. I am using S7, latest phone firmware. latest drone firmware. I have still to complete the IMU for the compass, is it that the IMU for the drone itself has to be fully completed before doing the remote controller? Is this why I don't see "tap to finish"? Any help appreciated.

    You cannot finish the calibration process until you calibrate the left wheel. Move it back and forth as far as it'll go.

    Thanks alot. I have wondering why I have not been able to finish the process and did not know about the controller wheel process.

    Hello,

    I have a brand new Mavic Pro.
    In his maiden flight, today, after i connected the drone, a remote control calibration error appeared.
    Ive calibrated the remote 6 or 7 times, with no effect; the error "right stick remains" - i made a youtube vid - plz see link -

    Only one stick moves (the right one, the one with the error) so the calibration times out... [size=14.6667px]What I don't have is "tap to finish"
    Ive saw several videos, tried everything.

    Any help ?

    Cant wait to fly my new bird, and this is very dissapointing...

    Thanks,

    Nuno

    Update: contacted the DJI supp on line.
    Told me to restart the remote.
    So i did.
    Problem persisted.
    downgraded remote controller version via dji assistant; problem remains.
    Anyone ?

    Try both sticks at the same time. And watch for the prompt for the wheel when both are done should get tap to finish then.

    No, I've done all that and it doesn't appear.

    There's just a button saying 'done'.

    I had that problem. After 5 or 6 tries I succeeded. Felt like I was playing a video game stacked against me.

    Once I started doing it and couldn't finish I was afraid that the controller would be really badly "tuned" so I kept at it until I succeeded.

    @msinger 's post that updated firmware and GO should resolve it is encouraging.
