    After a decent crash on christmas day one problem im having (aswell as a smashed gimbal) is my phantom isnt powering down like it use to.. no been tones as it turns off. . the battery just flashes red for about 13 seconds with all the arm lights still flashing then all the lights turn off .. any idea on what this problem is. Tried another battery and same thing happends phantom still flies but no video signal..

    sorry about your crash... there usually aren't any beep tones when turning off the Phantom... just when powering up. Do the batteries power up and down properly when they aren't installed in the bird? (your doing the short press then long press both on power up and power down right?)
