    Hi,

    I've flown my Phantom around 5 times now, always going through the calibration process before a flight.

    On a few occasions whilst in flight, the lights turn to amber and it can be difficult to control. Sometimes I think its loss of satellites and when I return it home, it finds the satellites again and is ok.

    I've googled it without any real answer, does anyone have any ideas or suggestions of what is happening or what I'm doing wrong?

    Also, I've got the standard Phantom kit straight out of the box, if you think any upgrades would be advisable I'd appreciate your thoughts.

    Many thanks

    Chris

    Could be a an issue with a switch on the TX. It could be switching to Atti - the centre switch position, giving you the control issues.

    Plug into a laptop and run the software. See if the switch is working correctly.
