    Hi guys, my phantom 2 doesnt enter in Calibration, it always set 1 yellow and 1 green light and fails doing the calibration.

    I have already tried Hard Reset without good sucess in the end.

    does some1 knows why in the first place it doenst turn to 2 yellow lights to start the calibration?

    Only flip the right hand switch up and down five or more times to setup for the compass calibration.

    Is this your video or one you found on youtube? Compass calibration should be done outside not indoors. Also from the looks of those props that unit has crashed lately. Has it not??

    With the RC unit turned off and P2 powered on turn the P2 over and see if the receiver LED is red then turn on the RC unit and LED should turn green.

    those are the marker light and i'm not interested in those. Turn the P2 over with the front facing you and with power on there is LED for the receiver on the right side and with RC unit off the LED should be RED. Now turn on the RC unit and that LED should turn GREEN.

    if the receiver LED turn green the P2 receiver is working.

    Now you flip the switch (S1) up and down 5 or more times the rear LEDs will turn yellow and after you do the compass cal those rear LEDs should turn green and start flashing green until it has home lock. If for some reason the calibration fails it will flash yellow and red. Once again compass cal is done outside only.
