    Have you plugged in to the assistant software on your PC or laptop to see if the RC is working when you work the sticks in the RC screen. If no you may have to rebinding the RC to the Phantom.

    First, very dangerous to fiddle with starting it indoors.

    If no Tx detected it should go to yellow LEDs. IIRC

    Others have eluded to performing both calibration procedures, did you?

    You may move the stick(s) 100% in a direction but the resultant output may only be read as 90%.

    Not enought to activate CSC.

    Take off props or go outside!!!

    If the drone fires up and doesn't detect a tx, there's a remote possibility that it could go into RTH mode, and you don't want an uncontrolled drone doing it's own thing in an enclosed space.

    I being a noob and an official dumbass had this happen.

    Phantom in office, on floor, idling, showing the wife and I turned the controller off - device took off per design to last "home" location which was 30' outside - through my knee. Scar will be there to remind me:
    1- never put props on when device is running in house
    2- NEVER turn of RC. Never in house! Only as last chance.
