    Can anyone help ID this LED flashing code?

    Started getting this red flashing about 5 minutes into a flight. Happened 2 times now. I didn't notice any impact on flight stability or control. Its in standard GPS control mode and had 13 sat's locked at the time. As you can see in the video, battery is a little over 50%. It has a H3-3D installed with a GoPro3 and the IOSd mini. Using the Standard Storm FPV from Helipad.

    I didn't see a corresponding explanation in the manual for the LED pattern and haven't run across something similar in the forums or on the youtubes... (might not be searching correctly though).

    You get that flashing when you are flying in a restricted area, are you close to an airport zone by any chance?

    hah.... never would have guessed that one. I checked out the no fly map on the DJI site and sure enough, our house is just on the edge of the outer yellow circle around Detroit Metro.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I'm so glad I found this thread! Just got my P2 two days ago and I was going to fly it for the first time today at work where we have a very large parking lot...right across the freeway from San Francisco International Airport. Needless to say it didn't work - wouldn't even take I off and I was like WTF? I knew about Fly Safe but didn't even think about it until I read this thread. Facepalm.
