    Hello all, new to the board. Looking forward to contributing to this community.

    I bought my P2 (non-Vision) from Dronefly.com on 12/19. Since then I've had 15 successful flights with only a few minor crashes causing no permanent damage aside from broken props. The thing is physically bulletproof.

    Today I took it outside to fly (I'm in Florida, still warm enough to fly down here) and couldn't get the motors to start. When connected to my MacBook, everything looked normal EXCEPT the number of discharge cycles: 30,042. Obviously, this is impossible.

    The only thing that had changed between my last successful flight and now is I connected it to the new OSX Assistant Software and switched it to NAZAM mode to try the different modes. When it wouldn't take off, I reconnected it and switched it back to Phantom 2 mode.

    Anyone else experience this?
