    I flew the phantom 3 advanced for ist time yesterday. All new firmware updates 1.06 and 1.05 on remote.
    While practising my night endorsement I managed to clip a tree branch and broke the tip off a prop.
    After shaking the snow off I brought it home to dry out. Recharged the battery and tried to fire it up props off.
    Remote said safe to fly.
    ESC status message came on when I tried to start motors 3 or four more times.. Changed the battery and still ESC status message. OH No I sure did not want to send it back for a repair, so I reinstalled the firmware on the unit for each battery and tried to restart. VOILA ! Purrs like a kitten again and I am very happy.
