    My new phantom won't power on except about every tenth try. Press the battery once then for 2 seconds and nothing until about 10 trys later... any ideas?

    It's all in the timing.
    Press and release quickly, wait 1 sec and press and hold for 1 or 2 secs.

    You do press the button twice like it said on the sticker that was on the battery and is described in the manual?

    Is the issue that it seems like it doesn't respond to the button press? Could be the button itself having issues. I posted a thread on this recently.

    Seems like my battery is super sensitive to the cadence more than anything. My son's doesn't act like that on his Phantom... oh well. thanks for replies everyone ;)
