    When switching over to NAZA mode the assistant software warned me several times that the status light meanings will be different in NAZA mode than in Phantom Mode.

    So what exactly is different with the status lights in NAZA mode?

    Have you seen this? http://www.pattayadays.com/2014/03/naza ... -2-vision/

    Now the lights (not exhaustive):
    With S1 up, transitions are as follows: green-red-red-red = no sats. green-red-red = sats but < 6. green-red = more sats but < 6. slow green = sats >= 6. rapid greens then back to slow green = home position established.
    Any time before slow green you should get rapid greens indicating course direction established. So two sets of rapid greens total. First set = course direction, second = home position.

    Be sure u have 2 sets of rapid greens before lifting off. And always lift off with S1 and S2 top.

    OK thanks for the info on the lights.

    One good thing about this silver case I got for my phantom, it reflects the lights so its easy to seen them when standing next to it.

    How are you liking the silver case? Thats the $129 or so one right? It is so much cheaper than some of the others.
