    Hi all, thanks for great site for newbie pilot to join your ranks. My P3pro arrived and I have set it up, watched the videos, successfully calibrated ...all in the beginner mode only to not get a green bar due to my drone's inability to get a GPS signal. I'm not near metal, magnets, obstruction or inside. My phone app says I have 18 GPS sat which should detect me. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance... I'm in Texas outside of Austin.

    The switch on the tx is in "P" position?

    I'm happy to report that I upgraded all firmware after Monday's release, made sure everything was charged and began the first of my 7 beginner flights trying to perfect the little skill I have. GPS lock was near instantaneous after I calibrated my aircraft. Looking forward to sharing my further flight experiences.
