    I have received totay the Phantpm 3 advanced, I did all updates with success and did also a couple of flights without any problems. Atfter landing of the last flight the phantom turns off. I thougth it is fact of the low battery charge about 20% but when I tryed to start up the phantom with a fully charged battery, no reponse of the phantom , no leds or beeping, he w'ont turn on ...[​IMG]

    Thanks in advance
    Edmund

    tap the button once then hold it for 2 seconds until all the lights come on. maybe you just aren't holding the button long enough

    Do you mean it won't start up with the gimbal mount attached?

    I think your holding the button down too long on the second press should be 2 seconds not 3 or 4

    No, it won't start without the gimbal clamp and I never start before the P3 with the clamp.
    In this video the clamp is mouted, car I knew the P3 is already dead.

    Will the battery stay on, when it is not in the phantom?

    Hi there

    I've got news from DJI, one esc was burned

    Fortunately it has happened on the ground and not in the air.
    It is strange an esc burned after the first few flights, newer happened with my other copters.
