Connecting the Camera

Before flight, always connect your smartphone to the Phantom’s Wi-Fi network. This is required for the camera control and FPV.

Connecting Procedures : Follow these instructions to connect a mobile device to the Phantom 2 Vision+ camera.

  • (1) Power on the Remote Controller and the Range Extender.
  • (2) Power on the Phantom 2 Vision+.
  • (3) Enable the Wi-Fi on your mobile device; wait for about 30 seconds, and then select “Phantom_XXXXXX” from the Wi- Fi network list.
  • (4) Run the FMS App on your mobile device.
  • (5) Tap the “CAMERA” icon and the FMS App will begin a live camera preview. This means everything Connecting the Camera is functioning normally. If it's not press the "synchro" button in the right bottom of the view.

N.B :

  • To have map's feature and weather conditions, the range extender have to be upgraded with DJI Vision App. Please follow the Quick start guide tutorial.

  • The SSID is unique for each Phantom 2 Vision+ It will appear as Phantom_XXXXXX in your Wi-Fi list.

  • At the first start of FMS App, internet connection is required for authenticate DJI SDK 2.0.

Low Battery Level Warning on the FMS App

Battery level warnings will show on the camera page of the FMS App when the battery level is low.

  • (1) A red light will flash on the app screen.
  • (2) Audible alarm. Make sure sound is turned on and volume is turned upon your mobile device.
  • (3) The aircraft battery icon will turn red.

Important Notes

• When you open the app first time, you need an internet connection. Otherwise, there will be an error message "App Register Failed: (ErrorCode: -1)". When you get this error message, make sure you have an internet connection, then kill the app and restart the app again. There are 2 common error codes generated from DJI SDK (ErrorCode: -1) RegisterErrorConnectInternet and (ErrorCode: -4) RegisterErrorDeviceNotMatch, though no further explanation from DJI so far.

• When you switch back-and-forth between DJI VISION app and FMS App, you may need to kill DJI app from memory (by double-clicking Home button and swipe out DJI app) because of DJI app is locking up FPV connection in the background without consideration of third-party apps. Otherwise, you may see "Phantom Connection Broken" and "Video Signal Lost" messages shown on FMS App. Unlike DJI app, FMS App would release the connection upon closing the app. Otherwise, the same locking up issue may also happen to DJI app.

• Most of infrequent use settings and features are unavailable in FMS App comparing to DJI Vision app (such as Compass Calibration, Current RTH Altitude, Binding, etc). Those settings are usually stored in Phantom or range extender. You may use DJI Vision app to change the settings and fly with FMS App inheriting those settings.
