Connection to drone
Cause: The app is not connected to the drone through Wi-Fi.
- Check that the Wi-Fi connection is activated from the device.
- Check that the range extender is turned on.
- Restart the App and the drone if you don't find the problem.
Cause : The drone is connected to less than 6 GPS satellites.
- Wait a few seconds.
- If possible, take off manually. The drone will detect more satellites if it is above the surrounding obstacles such as buildings.
Cause 1 : The drone is not connected to enough GPS satellites to retrieve its position.
Verify that the Drone GPS satellites check is validated.
Cause 2 : The home point is too far (more than 150m from the center of the grid).
Solution 2 :
- Switch the S2 switch several times to reset the home point to the current location.
- Select the Ignore homepoint option in the Settings.
Cause : The drone is too far away from the grid (more than 150 m).
Solution : Bring the drone close to the grid. It has to be maximum 150 m away from the center of the grid.
Cause: The camera is not ready to take pictures.
- Wait or tap Cancel in the takeoff checklist pop-up and restart the mission.
- restart the drone and the controller before starting over the mission.
- Eventually check before in DJI GO (4) if the camera is ready and working.
Cause : The drone or range extender battery level is not sufficient.
- Verify that the drone's battery is charged (at least 20%).
- Verify that the range extender's battery is charged (at least 20%).
Autopilot switch position
Cause : The switch is not in the correct position to allow automatic piloting or there is not enough GPS signal.
- Check that the Drone GPS satellites check is validated.
- Flip the switch of the remote controller to the correct position.
- Wait a few seconds.
Cause :The mission has not been uploaded to the drone or the mission was rejected by the drone.
- Wait. It may take a while for a long mission to be generated and uploaded.
- If the mission has has still not uploaded, ensure that you have a strong connection with your drone and try again.
- Restart your drone and then try again.
Cause : The drone requires calibration before it can fly.
Solution : Calibrate your drone using the drone's manufacturer app.
Cause: The app requires the drone's firmware to be up-to-date.
Solution : Use Parrot's FreeFlight3 app to update your drone and then try again.
