    New guy here. Taking my time trying to learn everything. Is there some trick to turning my controller off? Won't go off and starts beeping after a while.

    Just like Phantom, push button for a second and then immediately push a second time and hold in until it turns off - maybe 3 seconds.

    Hey Rancher - the RC and the Phantom both power on and off the same way. Press the power button once and release then press again and hold for two seconds and release.

    Thanks. I figured the beeping was a "turn me off" message but I didn't know how to comply. I appreciate your tolerance of dumb questions.

    There are no stupid questions Rancher.

    Oh yeh?
    If a cat always lands on its feet, and buttered bread always lands butter side down, what would happen if you tied buttered bread on top of a cat?

    First the source of the forces must be understood. The force acting on the
    bread is not the butter, as some may think. Without the bread, butter
    wouldn't land bread side up, and therefore the force could not possibly be
    in the butter. We know the force is not the bread because it has been
    experimentally proven that bread does not land any particular side down
    without butter. The bread/butter force is caused by the fusing of bread and
    butter particles together. This fusion causes energy to be released in the
    form of shifting gravity and anti-gravity energy to opposite sides of the
    bread/butter continuum. The gravity energy naturally shifts to the butter
    since it is denser then the bread, while the anti-gravity energy shifts to
    the bread side.

    The energy in a cat for landing on its feet comes from the feet themselves.
    This has been proven experimentally. Cats without feet have a near zero
    success rate of landing on their feet. We will call this energy cat foot
    energy.

    Considering the equal but opposing bread/butter and cat foot forces one
    would expect the cat to spin violently about its axis. However the strength
    of these forces must be considered. A regular cat is not structurally
    stable enough to withstand the torque the spinning causes. I should not
    have to describe the way the cat's limbs give way, the way the legs wrench
    around until the feet are on the same side of the cat as the butter. And
    thus the cat can then land on its feet, butter side down.:)

    OH, well that theory makes slightly more sense than a DJI repairs rep, that's for sure and I completely understand what you are saying a bit. Your theory does give rise to another question though!
    You said "Cats without feet have a near zero success rate of landing on their feet" why is that?

    My dog would chase the cat and eat the bread, maybe not in that order
