    I have a 4 week old P2V+, been flying daily, flew it 5 days ago, put it up for cold weather, went out this afternoon, all batteries charged, it went thru its startup routine, green lights blinking, 8 satellites present, all systems go... push the toggles down and in, NOTHING. All I got was a slight camera twitch.. I noticed during the startup routine that the camera did not tilt up to level, which I think it always does... SO I did the rebind thing, still NOTHING. I will state after all the latest firmware updates that my camera would not tilt by Tablet control, and I read here to change the TX from upgrade to basic via the Asst. That fixed the camera issue and I did fly it twice after that, and there were no issues. ANY IDEAS???? what to do next :?:

    It really sounds like the RC needs to be calibrated and then configured into the Phantom.

    Try reading this tread:

    OK, since that worked, do you have any idea why it lost calibration while sitting for 5 days, in the same spot it always sits? thanks for pointing me in the right direction

    Maybe a brownout (low power) messing up the data in the Phantom or RC. Since its stored in memory.
