DJI Phantom 3 Standard not flying the planned route

Dear all, 

I hope I posted this question in the right place.

 I have a Phantom 3 Standard that I'm using to map a site. I have recently bought and downloaded maps made easy after  many recommendations.

I'm able to plan and save the maps, on my iPad, connect to the drone, upload the plan, take off etc... But after the aircraft reaches flight altitude (65m in this case) nothing more will happen. The UAV will hover without making its way to the start point of the survey.

I'm not sure what is causing this, I calibrate the compass before each flight, and run through my checks, but I'm stumped.. it's frustrating!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Many thanks, 


Daniel Alexander

The Standard is probably the most unreliable aircraft to use due to the WiFi connection.  You can send us the associated CSV log file if you would like us to take a look at it to make sure the flight is being programmed properly.

It sounds like you may have an airspace issue though... Please verify that you can fly beyond that height manually using DJI Go first.
