Hi guys, Forums are always full of great info and colourful people! Wish I had come here first, instead of just reading manuals. I got a Phantom 2 Vision for my birthday from my Mum. She bought it a couple years back (when they were $1200) and used it a couple times. They love toys and technology, but don't really have the nack for piloting RC. They need a P3 or P4 with all the bells and whistles turned on. A friend on mine has a P3 Advanced? The most expensive one, which ever that is with the 4k. I have flown it a couple times, but I always hated the thought of damaging it and having to replace it, or fix it or whatever. So, cool... I got my own to mess with. The P2V is a lot.. um... less featured than his, so I have a bit of a learning curve to deal with. Plus with his, it was set up, and he hands me the controller, already configured, and ready to fly. I think that's where I am stuck. I got the firmware all up to date, and charged everything, and got everything 'sync'd' up in my living room, of course, at night and living in the city, I had to wait to fly it. So I take everything out to the Farm, and get it all out and did all my checks, and such... and I think I am ready to go. Oh, let me give you a run down of gear... Phantom 2 Vision Nexus 7 (2012) Litchi for P2 RE500 thingy So I fire up the Litchi, and it crashed a couple times. Never did that at home, but whatever... rebooted the device, hoping a fresh boot would make it more stable... and it did! Good news. So unit is sitting in the driveway, huge open space. Blinking lights, beep beep beeps, and all is a go. I hit the Green Launch arrow, and it's asks are you sure... and I think I am.... GO! If comes to life, and fires itself up in the air... to about 10 feet or so. I hit the sticks... nothing. It sat there, and just mocked me. Blinking and whirling... Jerk. Sooooo now what. It just hovers. (I got a great video of me standing there, looking up in confusion). I was going to go and get a ladder but just as I did, it started to climb again, out of reach... I though, someone is messing with me! It went up as high as the barn, rotated a couple times... and slowly set itself down on the drive. Serious? So I then figured out that the battery ran out and the return home function kicked in. Intradesting! Fight number one... flawless failure.
