    I would plug it in the computer and run the assistant to check if everything is correct. Check your RC calibration as well.

    Slow down . Plug your fc40 into your computer and run the naza program. If your batts. are fully charged it will show up any problems the phantom may have.

    I think you may need to calibrate the GPS just google it, it's easy to do. could also be that your controller needs calibrating but for that you will need to plug your phantom into the computer it's also easy to do. If you can't find what I've mentioned let me know and I will guide you.
