    New at this but need help, first time flyer, first attempt to launch, keep getting same sequence green pause followed by three more green, tried numerous times, same thing, what is wrong please help. Don't want to try to fly it, if something is correctable, it's new out of the box, never been started.

    I once had the same, but for the life of me I cannot recall how I got it to go away.

    But the first thing you'll want to do is connect up to the NAZA assistant and run Advanced Calibration
    that usually corrects anything to do with 4-6 green flashes, so it might fix the 3.
    be sure to report back on your findings

    It is good to go. just move your throttle up above 50% for take off, and it should flash one green.

    I somewhat disagree.

    double green= good to go
    single green (when stick is centered)= good to go

    3-6x green= SOMETHING is up and needs to be addressed.

    But that doesn't necessarily mean the bird should be grounded, only that something is off. and you should connect to the NAZA software to check things out to be sure.

    If you get 20x green, you should be ok to take off, and once the bird is in the air if you only get 1 or 2 green blinks you'll be fine.

    Thanks Gizmo3000, I thought It was a single, followed by a double, in my mind, he was good to rock on.

    It's a good thing you caught it. ;)
