Hi. New member looking for help please. Have just replaced Mini (lost over sea - auto landing that could not be cancelled) and am struggling to find accurate info online how to pair the replacement with my old remote control unit. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Presumably need to factory reset the RC - can this be done via my iPhone without need to use a laptop? Any advice greatly appreciated.
Many thanks, Matt

Thanks for the swift reply. I had tried the steps outlined both his the app and with the devices but the controller fails to pair and counts down all the way to zero without success. As the controller was paired previously to the old drone I imagine I need to reset it in some way? Can’t find any advice on this. Don’t want to wipe it incorrectly! Thanks again.

There's no need to reset anything.
The instructions in the manual are all that's required.
It usually takes less than a minute.
