DJI Phantom 3 Mods of The Day
If you fly a DJI Phantom 3 – or just plan to buy one -, you have surely come across the name Lynh Phan as the go to guy if you had some toughies other could not answer. Lynh is an avid RC enthusiast with extensive experience in building RC helicopters and a competition moderator on Helifreak, as well as the moderator of Inspire 1 and Phantom 3 related groups on Facebook. Lynh is a consultant to Smart Powerchage which is an amazing startup producing vital accessories for DJI quadcopters such as the SPC 4000 parallel charging station which I have reviewed earlier.
Lynh is a selfless supporter of the DJI Inspire and Phantom 3 pilot community and saved lots of valuable time and money for many of us with his DJI Inspire 1 tips and tricks. I am thrilled that we have agreed with Lynh to have a new and permanent home for a collection of his DJI Phantom 3 tips and Inspire 1 tricks here on Dronethusiast.

Gimbal Motor Overload Message
If you get this message whilst flying, please land your craft ASAP and check all four white dampers. Often one is detached and is the cause of the warning message.
Very simple to fix – turn off your craft and reinsert your damper(s).
