Hi everyone

I am a new Mavic Pro owner.. I just got it yesterday.. Got it all setup.. both drone battery and remote battery are fully charged,,,

got my samsung galaxy s6 hooked up to the remote.. i got the app up..i can turn on the remote. it keeps saying connecting then it starts beeping with the word binding on it. When i hit the drone power button, the 4 green lights come up for a few seconds, then it goes away..

I have it set to RC. Anyone have an idea what i may have missed or maybe what i have setup wrong? Have spend numerous hours on this and i hit the web looking for some answers.

thx in advance.

Shawn

you might be doing it wrong? Both the remote and the aircraft needs one short press followed by a long press to turn on and off.

Check that you have the aircraft switched to RC and not WI-FI that's most likely the issue.

Slow yellow flash = no GPS
Fast yellow flash = RC signal lost
