    Sounds like you need to calibrate the IMU. (especially if you're getting anything other than a single green blink prior to take-off).

    Read up on how to install the NAZA software and connect your Phantom up to a PC

    Also you need to be a bit heavy on the throttle at take off, too little will cause it to flop to one side.

    Best thing to do is rev the motors a little bit let them all get to speed then go full stick once up back off . You'll get it

    Would be good if DJI could put the "full throttle for liftoff" thing in the manual. I struggled with that also at the beginning.
