    I haven't flown in about a month. Today I charged up all my batteries and when I tried to power on the phantom, nothing happens. The battery lights power on the turn off. I haven't crashed and my firmware has been updated. I tried all my batteries and same result. Any ideas?

    This may sound like a stupid question, but you have remembered that it takes a double press to start the aircraft, I assume? That still seems to be something that catches out people after not flying for a while.

    Yeah, make sure you tap once, then press and hold. The lights will slowly go up from 1 to all 4.

    Yep, remember you can turn on the batteries without them in the Phantom. You do that if you want to top them off just before flying.
