    You are probably in a NO FLY zone

    same thing happened to me, stupidly i bought a second hand battery that the previous owner said had done one flight and assured me it was a genuine DJI product, turned out it wasn't. Phantom did everything right untill i went to start motors, red lights flashing and no go....swapped batteries and she was off again. Could be your problem if you have just bought a new battery. Genuine batteries have "DJ" before the serial number and on the end of the battery.

    The warnings should appear on your smartphone/smart device.
    Try not to take off on concrete. Put her on a plastic box.
    If you have had a crash, redo IMU.
    Maybe get a laptop and see what the Phantom Assist is telling you.

    Maybe get a laptop, plug it in the field and see what the phantom assist is telling you.

    If the concrete has a lot of rebar in it, it affects the compass.
