    Hello,

    I have my Phantom Vision now for several weeks and had never Problems . I flew at least 15-20 battery loads and I'm very happy with the performance of the PV.

    Today when I wanted to start it, I got the battery error, which I got once or twice before. Red blinking Phantom.

    After the Phantom powered up correctly and found all the satellites, I wanted to start it and it did not create enough push to lift off the ground.

    I tried several times to reinsert the battery, I switched off the remote - nothing I still have the same problem.

    Any Idea what this can be?

    Thanks!

    Best regards

    Bernd

    I had this happen once. But after stopping and restarting it, it flew ok.
    Seems that I read somewhere, maybe in the manual, that if the right control lever is not in the neutral position when starting up, that this can happen?????

    Update all your firmware. It helped solve that issue for me.

    I had the same error and it went away after updating the firmware. Update the aircraft and the remote transmitter firmware.

    That said, be very careful for the first few flights afterward, others have experienced problems that might be related to this tye of error.

    I did the updates.
    Still the behaviour is the same.

    In the past I could also stop the phantom when landed by pulling down the right control (power) .

    Now it seems that the rotors just turn in a different direction.

    The spooky thing is this happened from one flight to the other. I had no crash, no hard landing.

    DJI advised to send it back.
