    When your remote controller is not plugged in, what happens when you quickly press and release the power button on the front of the remote controller?

    I don't understand either. . .

    Are you saying the RC's battery is dead?

    1. Was it working earlier and doesn't work now?

    2. When did you use it last in working condition ?

    3. Did you update its FW ?

    4. Did you charge it for six hours?

    Oakwood, I have a few more questions for you:

    1) How long did you attempt to charge your remote controller?
    2) Is your remote controller brand new out of the box?
    3) If it's not brand new, was it sitting unused for a long time?

    Press the on button, immediately release it and then immediately press it down again and hold it down for 3 seconds. This is in the user manual. Did you read it!? If that doesn't turn it on then the battery is probably dead. It doesn't mean you need a replacement battery! Put the charger on it for 6 hours and try again. Be patient and let it charge!
