Failed to shoot

Post by GHolland » Sat Jan 28, 2017 11:52 pm

Hi, I bought an xplorer V yesterday. Everything works, camera connects and I get video preview. However, every time I try to take a picture or video it pauses for a few seconds and then I get the message "Failed to Shoot". I have updated the camera firmware but no change. I am using an iPhone 6 to connect. Has anyone any ideas what might be happening?

I have the V as well but I use android to connect. I have the same issue sometimes. I think it is due to interference from other local wifi routers in the area. Last night I had it @ 300 feet straight up and had to point the back of the controller at it to get it to take the pics.
I switch from pic to video and start recording then stop and I can go back to still shots again. Not a fix, but if it helps....
Waiting for the mini wifi booster I ordered yo see if that fixes the issue.
We will see.
