    So a few times so far I goto arm the Phantom and all that happens is the gimbal moves a hair to the right and the LEDs flash green 2-3 times but not arming! I turn it off, pull battery and restart and nothing. Tried different batteries and nothing. Than I brought it inside, took props off, and she armed! HUH? Went back outside and flew with no problems. What didn't the Phantom like that she didn't arm? happened to me 2 other times but after power cycling and removing battery it worked. Please anyone with any ideas let me know. BTW I calibrated the compass every time it would not arm and nothing.

    Thanks!

    Read the manual. There are a number of error conditions that are designed to prevent flight (will not arm). Most likely an IMU calibration is called for. That requires an absolute level surface.
