    Hello!

    Thank you for the warm welcome, Isabella and Richard! I've been learning quite a lot from this forum and finding it most informative, as well as interesting. I'm currently between drones. I sold my P4P hoping to buy an Inspire 2. But, as luck would have it, I had to have my deck rebuilt. So, there went my savings earmarked for the new drone. But I will be getting another sUAV soon i hope. Because I really enjoyed what little flying, photography and videography i have done up to this point. I'm eagerly looking forward to getting FAA certified. But I've just been too busy lately to take the time to further prepare for and schedule the exam. Here's to "Blue Skies and Safe Flying". Cheers from Pa.

    Greetings from Mid-Wales

    Hello ! And welcome to this forum. I'm new to drone flying as well. This is a great place to learn about whatever aspect of sUAV flying interests you. And I'm sure you'll find folks here are more than willing to share their knowledge and experience. Have fun and fly safe! Mike.

    Hello!

    Hello everybody! My name is Mike Collison. I'm new to the UAV Coach community. I am in W. Central Pa. DuBois to be exact! I am currently a hobbyist in the world of drones. But I have prepared for, and plan on getting my FAA 14 CFR part 107 certification. My background is in the telecommunications industry. Where I was a regional call center manager, IT Pro, and system trainer over 20+ years. I still pick up some work, mostly troubleshooting network problems, cabling and hardware/software installations. My goal is to continue learning from fellow drone enthusiasts and professionals alike. So eventually, I will be capable of operating a professional aerial photography business. I look forward to meeting new people, sharing knowledge and experience from all of the members of this community. Thanks to all! And HAPPY FLYING!

    My Favorite Drone Podcasts

    Why not? There certainly seems to be some highly qualified pilots in this forum! Maybe even someone with the right contacts to make it happen!

    No GPS Data in EXIF File

    Hello Helo, I'm sure that by now you have solved this problem. But as I have just joined the community and just read your post. I thought I would add my two cents. For what it's worth. I have over twenty years in the telecommunications industry, and know that high power transmission towers can knockout GPS when in fairly close proximity. So, it occurred to me that the EXIF file may not show GPS data because it was not working when the pictures were taken. Again, that would depend on how close to the tower the drone was when the pictures were taken. Just a thought! I hope everything is working as it should now!

    Poor range

    Hi Rick, have you recently updated the firmware for the aircraft and/or transmitter? If so did the problem start after the updates? I'm sure you know that you should update both the aircraft and the transmitter, if a firmware update exists for both. Here is a YouTube video that might help. Also, you can do a factory reset using the DJ I Assistant app. And if you have a failed firmware update, you can go back to a previous version as well. Here is a video for that. As for comparability with the DJ I GO 4 app, I'm sorry to say that the phantom 3 series is only compatible with DJ J GO. The Dji GO 4 was designed for the phantom 4 and inspire series to allow for future updates that would not work with older models. I hope this helps!
