2-3 Red led's after starting flight?

    I'm getting intermittent red blinking on the led near the start of flight - 2 or 3 at a time. Only seem to get this in the first 30 seconds to minute of flight. Not sure if its GPS or if's some sort of battery alert / power draw as its usually while I'm full power trying to get altitude. Any idea's or has anybody else notified this?

    A whole lot more concerned if its losing GPS. As It locks on pretty quick on the initial power up and I always wait for Home point confirmation / seconds set of rapid green led's.

    Seems to be running fine after that and no more led's until LV warning. Anything to worry about?

    You might check whether it's the voltage alarm by lowering the L1 protection value. If the flashes disappear and reappear when you raise the L1 again you can be pretty sure it's the voltage alarm and not the GPS.

    Cheers BB - I'll give that a go - wind has finally calmed down, but now rain... It eating into Phantom time. I'm leaning to LV as it when I give it full gun into the air.
