    Hello guys.

    Yesterday I lost the control of my aircraft at middle of one flight. First, I did the process to calibrate him.
    When I tried to take flight, a very strong wind came and turned the aircraft 180ยบ. I turned again and take flight, with red lights. I had to fight a little against the wind, and after some time he flyaway and when I saw that there would be enough grass, clicked to turn down at app. Then he went down and had an impact on the ground. Since then, I try to turn it on but it does not last about 4 seconds, as I show in the video. As show in the picture, the upper right propeller arm had a small strain . What can I do? Has anyone ever experienced this?

    Thanks!

    Looks like you are just getting battery status, hold that second press a bit longer.

    As far as the shell separation, use a thin plastic tool, separate the shell halves slightly, align, and snap together. There are two half's of a snap feature at that location.

    Check DJI material for that light pattern on the battery. I read somewhere it will do that maybe after firmware update while doing battery update.

    Can't very well be doing an update if there is no battery.

    I had mine turn off like this. I had two batteries and they both did it. There was some kind of a short in the aircraft. It was a week old so I returned it.

    I don't know if this relates to yours or not. But my lights turned off just like that. It's like there is a short IN the aircraft.
