Have not flown in a while so I decided to take the phantom for a brief flight. Went out to the street and done the calibration, etc.. all was set to go. Got her up in the air using auto take off, got it hovering and decided to go up a little ways, once I got her up I happened to notice red lights flashing ????? So i decided to bring it down (was up only 30 ft. or so I'm guessing. as i got it about 1/2 to 1 foot of off the ground to land i noticed it started drifting. Then it seems as if the props started speeding up??? luckily I was only a few feet off off the ground. And as all of this was going on my bird started "atti mode, atti mode" ??? I started in "GPS" well being only about 6 inches off the ground it tilted in a run away fashion but i was pullling down hard on the stick to stop it. She kinda skimmed across the yard "on the prop guards" thank goodness for those and finally came to rest.
