    Went to fly tonight (perfect weather)..... P2V+ won't start the motors.

    Tried everything I could think of. Still no start.

    What simple thing did I miss?

    Tried 4 sets. Same results. And they all test good.

    I take it you have the Vision app running on your phone? What's that saying? All normal? What colour of lights are you seeing under the rear legs?

    Everything was normal. Good battery (97%), 8 satellites. Rear light flashing green.

    Tried turning everything off and back on 4 or 5 times. Calibrated compass. Just no get-up-and-go when CSC to start up.

    Check the stick calibration in both the RC Assistant and the Vision Assistant. Holding In the CSC position do they read 1000? If they're off perhaps the Phantom doesn't recognize that you are actually in the CSC position. Just a guess.

    Is the TX light normal steady green?
    Could be you lost the pairing.
    The calibration will show if phantom receives a signal at all.

    Are you doing a CSC?

    I'd hook up to assistant and see what's going on.

    Other posters have asked you if you have calibrated the TX in RC assistant as well as phantom assistant.
    You have not indicated that you have done this.

    Motors will NOT start if calibration of the TX is out.

    Actually, I did that the night before. But.... after calibrating it again today........... it works!!!!!!

    Not sure why the first one screwed it up.
