    What device are you connecting the drone to?

    Typically, Quads do not need the internet to fly. They use their own WiFi for communication and control.

    You might need the internet to download the app to your "device" and upgrades and such.

    But no Internet needed for flying.

    Good luck.

    Rana,

    I've recently had a similar problem with a quadcopter from another company. The smartphone found the wifi signal & read "connected" yet the
    drone did not react to commands from any of 3 different smartphones nor did they receive input from the drone's camera.

    The seller has agreed to replace the drone.

    Your smartphone will say "no internet" on any wifi device that isn't a router providing internet, like a printer or your drone.

    I haven't tried flying mine with the smart phone, just use it to see the video and start or stop the camera. I fly it with the transmitter. The wifi range seems pretty short, so maybe I'd better stick to the transmitter for control.

    Rana, Always use the TX for flight. Wifi tends to lag for several ms. and its use as a controller is a good way to crash & burn. There's a good chance the wifi board on the drone crapped-out.
