    Just got my new phantom a couple of months ago, flew once with no problem, but tried today with no success. It seems that the connection with the RC is there (green light), tried multiple times. I am 100% a rookie and honestly have no knowledge of drones. Maybe someone have the same issue and resolve it.

    Have you read your manual?

    Can you give us more info? What is the light sequence on startup?

    Not being funny but are you bringing both sticks down and in to start the motors?

    No problem at all. Yes I did follow that step after I saw the green light on my drone and my RC

    Can you tell us if you are getting any messages or warnings in the app when you first connect it?
