    After following flight sequences and rotating to set compass and establish 6+ GPS satellites, I noticed on last two flights front red lights were not illuminated. Once airborne above residential roof-tops, red lights illuminated. Can someone advise cause and solution to this issue?

    :?
    The red (front) lights come on when you start the motors. That is normal.

    Yup.

    (I hesitated on this one as it seemed the OP was suggesting they illuminated mid-flight.)

    As I mentioned, the red lights do not illuminate when the motors start; only after reaching altitude above roof level of houses. When I press stick to UP, only the green lights are illuminated.
