    Hey guys,

    So had a problem where my Phantom refused to start. When I turned it on the LED lights flickered for a split second just before the beeps. I don't remember it ever doing this. I thought the LED lights just came on solid from the beginning. Had to upgrade firmware and now LEDs come on solid for the beeps but they still flicker briefly on that first power up.

    Can someone please check for me if theirs also flickers on startup or if this is a different problem with mine. Also if you could mention what FW you're on.

    Thanks

    For an accurate test send us a video of your start up.

    Awesome. Thanks so much for that. Good to know mine isn't any different to others then.
