    Hey - at my inlaws in Kansas. I brought the bird. Calibrated the compass (I think it worked) and it appears that I am in a "restricted area". I can still fly and everything works but the light on the back end flash green then turn red - solid. Then go back to green flashing...........it also appear that the return to home doesn't work. It has the home point set but doesn't come home. It just starts to land where it is at.

    Thoughts?

    Was your Phantom further than 20m from the home point? If not, it will land at its current location. That's by design per the Phantom manual.

    Probably not. That is what it is. Any info on the red and green lights?

    Yes I think that is it. I think it is the second one.
