Check that your cable was properly connected to both the controller and your tablet.

The iPad doesn’t control your drone, it is a convenient screen and interface. The RTH and pause buttons on the controller will still work. You can fly your drone with restrictions without the screen at all, you just can’t see what the camera can see or any mapping. I use an iPad Mini4 connected using a short USB A to right angle lightning cable and haven’t had any disconnects since I started to use this setup.
