    Hey All.
    I have come across an unusual problem.
    After I do the normal pre flight checks. And start the DJI. I fly it away from for about 20 mts. The DJI starts blink blinking red and goes into fail safe mode.
    I have done the following test to isolate the problem,
    1. New batteries
    2. When connecting the battery and starting the DJI. All the systems are normal.
    Green, Yellow red light, Then Green and 3 reds for a period of 20 seconds. Rapid green lights (home lock). And then consistent green light blinking.
    I switched it from GPS mode to ATTI mode and back and the LED light change accordingly.
    3. I did a compass recalibration.

    After these checks the problem still arises.

    I am flying it in a field, No cell phone towers, no high tension wires around.

    The first flight of the day went smooth. No issues. The subsequent flights the problem came up.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks robin

    20 minutes?

    Sounds about right for low batt. depending on flight characteristics.

    Does it seem too soon for you?

    20 minutes on a P1, please share with us, or perhaps just me, what batteries you are using ?
