● Check the micro USB cable going from your smartphone or tablet to the RC.

● Check your remote controller.  Make sure that the ports and cables are clean.

● Make sure the signal is strong when flying DJI Mavic Mini.

● Cleat the cache.

Video Cache: In the DJI Fly app, go into the General settings (3 dots in top right of the screen). Scroll down and tap on “Clear Video Cache”. Click OK.

Storage Cache: On your Smartphone, go into the phone settings, click on Apps, look for the DJI Fly app and open it up. Click on “Storage”. Next, tap on the “Clear Cache”.

● Remove the micro SD card and try to fly to see if it is still disconnected. If you are not disconnected, use a full format SD card on your Windows computer. If formatting still causes a disconnect, replace the memory card with the DJI recommended 64 GB SanDisk Extreme micro SD card.
