    No mate just switch off the bird unplug the battery, and stick the next one in, boot up and it does it automatically listen to the d...dd sounds they change and the light goes green then it's done, rinse and repeat for each battery

    Oh and don't remove or format the SD card till all your battery's are done

    Jobs a good un

    Your more than welcome buddy, This is a great place most folks just want to help and share knowledge, there is only a very very small number of clowns and you quickly work out who they are

    Enjoy your phantom it's an amazing machine

    Just remember this forum is usually where folks discuss problems, and it can seem negative trust me it ain't you tend not to post when things are going well lol
