This thing frustrates the **** out of me sometimes.
I turn on the RC then the drone sometimes the screen opens and goes to GOFLY no problem other times it goes to the ENTER DEVICE sceeen so I do what it says and then nothing it just won't connect. But the green light is flashing and it will fly I just have no screen to see, so I can't fly anyway . Sometime I shut it all down start over and it works sometimes I can't get it to connect no matter what I do. what the heck is going on. I've had this problem on and off ever since I've been flying over a year. I can't figure out why sometimes it just fires up and go fly and other times I can't get it to connect at all any Ideas

My limited knowledge on Android will not be a benefit here.
If someone that is familiar with this device can jump in and provide some insight, please do.

I have heard of a few controller problems that just wouldn’t connect, but I think it’s rare. If you can’t seem to gain any ground, I do have an extra controller that you could try. We aren’t too far apart.

I ran into this issue and it turned out the port on the phone I was using at the time was very sensitive to the cable being in just right. Basically the port on the phone was not so good.

Definitely try a different cable. A regular USB cable that plugs into the bottom of the controller instead of the micro USB port on the side.

Try plugging tablet in, either launch Go4 (or have the defaults set so it auto launches) before turning control on. Turn on drone, controller, and after a couple seconds it should click through to go fly.

Other thing to check. Use a standard usb-c cable in the back USB port of the Controller, see if that works more reliably, if it does might mean a duff micro-type-c cable in the side of controller
