    Edit: When I switch on my controller there is an error: Enable Multiple Flight modes. Help, Can't find it.


    Edit: I fixed it, Message to everybody. Enable Multiple Flight modes in the Main Controller Settings tab and then go to the "F" mode on the controller.

    You are aware of the tab under Main Controller Settings, Multiple Flight Modes, in the Go app which needs to be turned on, as well the switch on the left front of the RC, must be in F (Function) Mode for Intelligent flight modes. The drone must be at, or above a specific height, to enable...

    Good luck...
    Edit:, ok good, you have already figured it out. Thanks for reporting back...

    Enjoy.

    No problem, I usually lazily type with just one finger, so my hen pecking takes time. Ha

    So please Come back much later, for my reply!! Chuckles
    Enjoy the autonomous flight modes. I rarely if ever use mine, but they are awesome non the less.
    I find it remarkable, that a hobby class drone, can have such unique and Indepth firmware capabilities. Remarkable. Leaves all other drone makers guessing what DJI will bring forth, in future next model iteration/s.

    Let me get this straight. You are going to fly your nice new Phantom without even knowing the basics of the Go App!!!

    I'm not trying to be rude, but this isn't a toy and you really do need to put in a bunch of time to learn every aspect of flying.

    This forum is full of people that crash their Phantoms because they didn't quite fully understand how each function works.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Happy and safe flying !!

    We all began walking in the same baby shoes. RC Piloting, and learning to fly well, takes time and patience. The awesome power hungry DJI Phantom firmware and ultimate Go app, go well beyond the basics, and is rich with parameters, various user friendly flight controls, & basic camera settings. It takes some time and a small learning curve to become an aggressive drone pilot, and DJI fluent...
    All in good time...

    Sounds like he lost a prop. That will crash a phantom very quickly. Gotta know the basics as @fastfed noted above. Sorry for your loss.

    Wow really sorry for the loss of drone. I wouldn't recommend using litchi without learning it.... Take my situation... I have about 10 hours of experience flying and decided to give litchi a shot... First thing I tested was the orbit feature... Set it up a d as soon as I launched it.... It flew sideways almost crashing into a tree lol. I have nothing at a bad to say about litchi... But all I knew is I need more room, and more knowledge to learn about it. I would never dream of setting it out in a mission for my first ever time trying it lol

    Haha, You suck. I already have the drone 3 months. So stop hating and get a life.

    On the log I saw that one cell broke or something.

    All props went still on the drone, Just flying arount in open space, And then boom. I saw that it gave a compass error and fall down.
