    Greetings. I have a VP2+ and two batteries. I have flown at our local high school on Both batteries with out any problems.
    I went for a flight the other night and one of the batteries would not power up the bird and gave me flashing red lights indicating some type of error. I packed up went home and with that same battery that gave me the error did a test flight. The bird powered up and flew just fine. I can't seem to figure out why the battery will no longer work at the school but both work just fine at other locations. Any ideas or thoughts are greatly apperciated.. cheers!

    Are you within 5 miles of a major airport? it may go into "no fly zone" mode
