    Hello,

    I just noticed today for the first time that my front red lights don't come on until I take off. It's a Phantom v2 plus.

    First I turned it on in my condo, and the lights were being funky. I can't remember the specifics. I think the rear lights weren't coming on. Then I took it outside, and the rear lights would come on. I would calibrate the compass. During the calibration the front lights weren't coming on.

    Then I decided to try flying it anyway. As soon as I pushed up on the stick, the front lights came on solid red, the rear were solid green.

    Anyone see this before?
    Thanks,
    Jack

    The normal condition is the front [red] LEDs come on at motor start.

    The rear indicate many things depending on flight modes, satellite 'count', battery level, etc.

    Check the DJI GO app - you can turn off the led's - maybe you did so be accident - I wish I could tell you under what tab this option is located but step through them its there - I don't remember the location
