    Hi All,
    Total newby here, just received my Phantom 2 and crashed it the second flight. Almost lost some fingers in the process.

    I have a whole pile of questions, but let's start with the first one. I cannot connect to the Assistant, so I cannot check the settings.
    I have installed the drivers, that went OK. Then I installed the Assistant SW, that went fine.
    If I plug the remote in via USB and switch it on, I get the usb Connect sound, so it does recognize the device.
    But then when I start Assistant, none of the lights at the bottom light up.

    After fiddling with it and trying different USB ports, I uninstalled everything and re-installed. Same problem.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    Lykle

    You don't specify which assistant u r using so I will assume the PC assistant. That one will do nothing with the controller plugged in. That one is used with Phantom plugged in. Then turn on the controller and you will see some controller settings.

    If you want to plug in the controller, use the RC assistant from DJIs website.
