Well I researched for a while and decided to get the newest Phantom 2 Vision Plus and it arrived today. I wish I had good news. I turned on the unit on and it powered up fine but the battery was low. I turned it all off and charged the battery. Once fully charged I put the battery back into the Phantom and tried to turn it on. It seemed to turn on for a second then turn itself off. This happened numerous times. After reading the manual over and over and I couldn't find anything that would explain the battery not powering up. So I called the place I ordered it from and he walked me through turning it on again. So I turned it on and held it for the two seconds and after the third attempt smoke started to billow our of one of the arms. I am fairly upset at this point and he asked me to send it back to him. Has anyone had this happen to them at all??? Or did I just get a dud??? Not a happy camper right now.
