Okay...it seems the iPad is NOT connecting with the controller. So your problem is deeper than "RC won't connect to AC." I assume you have tried different cables? Also, sometimes re-orienting the cable in the iPad makes a difference.
Has it ever connected as I didn’t see history of you, controller, etc. Have you ever flown this unit with existing gear. Where are you located?I've tried to reconnect both ways ,tried to reset controller, updated the firmware in the Inspire but won't update on the controller even tried to reconnect with the red button on the bird still nothing...
I would’ve lent you my spare controller if in states but presume Berwick etc in UK. I’m at a loss other than something dumb and simple like reseating the X3/Zoom/X5 and starting all over?Yes it worked fine just turned it on one day and it didn't work ,I'm located in Berwick upon tweed
Okay....so clearly the iPad is NOT connecting with the controller. This is NOT a firmware or software issue. The Go App doesn't care which version of firmware you are running. The Inspire 1 controller only has two firmware versions; 1.6 and 1.7. And any version of the Go App will connect to those versions. So clearly this is a hardware issue. If I recall, you already tried different cables, plugging and unplugging, reorienting the connection at the iPad, RESETTING THE CONTROLLER, etc. I can conclude here with a very high level of confidence that your USB port is shot. This is NOT something "simple."
Based on all the data I have been given and the exchange of comments, I can say with 100% confidence that I have troubleshot this problem. The only way I'm wrong is if any of the input data is incorrect.I wish I were that confident problem solved, tho’ Occam might agree with you lol ie Occam of Occam’s razor who is misquoted often!
