Hello everyone,
I've been having a problem with connecting my cgo4 to the controller. It takes like two to three times to connect. I mean, I have have control to turn off the camera, but no video on screen. And even when I fly at times the video goes out and I have to bring it down and reset it. And sometimes I get a gimbal glitch. Where it jerks continually until I reset the drone. I've calibrated the drone and the only thing that seems to work is turning it off and then turning it on again
Anyone has any ideas if how to fix this?

I think I just need a new cgo4 unit.
But I want to see if I could fix it before I do that.

Thanks

Use a computer, tablet, or phone with 802.11a/ac (5.8 GHz WiFi) capability and connect to the camera. The SSID should be CGO4_xxxxxx where the x’s are the last 6 digits of the MAC address with a password of 1234567890. In fact there should be a CGO4 app for both iOS and Android that you can get video feed after connecting via WiFi as well as take photos and video. It may help isolate if the issue is in the phone or the ST16.

Do you still have a Typhoon H and CGO3+ that you can bind to the ST16 to check if the WiFi module is working? You can also go into Pad mode on the ST16 and use the WiFi to connect to a 802.11ac Access Point to check the functionality of the ST16’s WiFi module.

Thanks doom I'll try this. But If it is the wifi module. Is that a swap and play. Or will I need to program the new wifi module?

You might try contact cleaner on the CGO4 plug and socket then reseat the plug into the H920PLUS. This is a known weak link. At least try the simple things first.
