    Hi there,

    I just received my phantom 2 yesterday. Took it out for the first time and found that after what seems to be a normal start up, the rear lights slowly blink yellow. They don't change from yellow at all. From the manual this means it's ready to fly without gps, which I don't want to have to do.

    It certainly responds by blinking yellow fast if I turn off the controller. But that's it, turn the controller back on, and it goes right back to slow blinking yellow lights.


    Please help! Thank you!!

    Is your TX set to GPS mode?

    Please make sure you read through the manual. It is quite important. Very important actually.

    You should get your answer pretty quickly.

    Everyone should have read the manual before first power up.
