    I have tried to connect my phone to my sharper image dx-5 drone. My phone is an iphone 6s with ios version 10.2.1. I downloaded the app for the phone to connect and it won't connect to the drone. this drone uses wifi for it's connection. please help.

    The app is for streaming video image to your phone only, not to control the DX-5. Any quad/camera that I connect to my android tablet use the same basic procedure:

    -Power up quad and activate wifi if required
    - go into settings→wifi and you should see the dx-5 connecting
    -open app and you should now see video being displayed

    Check to make sure you downloaded the correct app (ios vs android)

    When you go into your wifi settings of your phone, are you seeing the drone?

    Doubt it, but the app usually states system requirements. Also, do you have Bluetooth disabled? Sometimes it can interfere but usually just the dependability of connectivity. Worth a try though.

    i usually keep blutooth disabled to save battery with the phone.
