    Please read the manual. You need to charge battery as first step

    Right -- always start with a fully charged battery. It doesn't sound like you're turning it on properly though. You need to press the battery button, release it, and then press and hold it.

    When you press and release the intelligent flight battery button once, it shows you the relative charge left in the battery. Then the LED diodes go dark. To turn the drone on, you press that button once, and then a second time and hold it in for a couple seconds or two.

    Please read the online PDF manuals, as well, any literature that was included in your kit.
    You're treading on very thin Ice, without a good basic knowledge off your fine new drone, before you take it up, Into space.

    Don't be in hurry, read documentation fully and then attempt to try it flying. It's a beautiful bird, easy to fly but needs discipline.
