Solve the connection problem between drone and mobile phone

Connection issues between the drone and your phone can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as low battery, physical damage, inconsistent firmware, controller issues, or interfering background applications. If you encounter this type of issue, follow these troubleshooting steps:

Battery power

Check the battery level of the drone and controller. If the battery is low, fully charge both devices before trying to connect again.

Firmware update

Make sure the firmware on your drone, controller and mobile app is updated to the latest version. Outdated firmware can cause connectivity issues. Updates often come with bug fixes and new features that enhance connectivity between devices.

Reinstall the drone app

Updates to your phone's operating system may change app permissions, causing connectivity issues. In this case, deleting and reinstalling the drone app on your phone can solve the problem.

Test using different phones

If the problem persists, try connecting your drone to another phone. This can help you determine whether the problem is with the drone or the original phone.

Controller reset

Resetting the drone controller to factory settings can also resolve connectivity issues. After resetting, try to resync the drone with the controller or phone.

Network settings

Check your phone's network settings to make sure they meet your drone's requirements. Any differences may break the connection.

Physical inspection

Inspect your drone and its controls for any visible signs of damage or wear. If you find any damaged parts, they may be the cause of connection problems and may need to be replaced.

If after following these steps your drone still won't connect to your phone, it's best to contact the drone manufacturer. They can provide additional troubleshooting assistance or determine if your drone needs repair or replacement.

In conclusion

Connecting a drone to a mobile phone is the first step for novice consumer drones. The Autelpilot store provides you with as many Autel drone usage guides and instructions as possible, allowing you to easily connect the drone to your phone. Create seamless connections.
