    My newest drone is a phantom 3 and when i turn it on the lights just blink real fast. I believe this is a controller issue… when I try to link the app it doesnt work. any ideas?

    Hi Ariel66, thanks for contributing to the forum. I am very familiar with this controller issue! You can try to link the controller manually.


    First, turn your drone upside down and look for a little recessed button. Take note where it is. Find something small enough to be able to push that button

    Turn on both the controller and the drone.

    Wait about a minute to make sure they are all powered up and pick up your drone and push that recessed button for 2 seconds. The button will start to blink red.

    Now take your camera dial, the gimble dial to the far left. Flip the S2 switch a few times. The controller will start to beep after it begins linking.

    Hope that works well for you,

    Well, after typing all that out I decided to give a look and I found this video on youtube. It does a better job of showing what I was trying to describe lol
