    Hello all. This is my first post since this is my first dilemma. Ive been flying my P2V+ since Aug. After the latest update I noticed my rear lights are flashing yellow / green. It acquires GPS with no problems and flies just fine. If need be it can find its way home. I understand the sequence of yellow / green if for warming up and it shouldn't fly. However it does fly and fly well. What do you think? Should I be concerned?

    It looks like you might have the S2 switch set to IOC. Make sure both top switches are in the top position.

    My IOC switch failed and it would not switch to any other mode. Maybe the same fault?

    Dont check out on the next flight. Check it out while she is still gounded.

    Plug the RC or Phantom to the PC and check the switches if they have activity. All you need to do is flick up and down and you see the slider move.

    If the switch has failed and you happen to be stuck in IOC, unplug the other toggle (GPS/ATTI/FS) switch and swap them over to get you out of trouble.
