I just got the phantom 2 vision. I spent the entire day reading the manual and getting it ready to fly. I charged the lipo, put fresh new batts in radio and charged the wifi booster all per the manual. I watched the dopy videos on line to make sure I was doing everything correctly. I even download the mac software and connected both the copter and the handheld radio to make sure I was running the most recent firmware. (I was). So to be clear, I have not made any physical or software adjustments. It is completely stock setup out of the box. (sorry, I did put on prop protectors....and glad I did) I have flown a few helicopters before. mostly the little indoor copters without any problems. My goal today was to become comfortable getting all the systems operational and to hover 3 or 4 feet off the ground. So i'm outside now. I got the Radio powered on (check)....I got the copter powered up (check).. I got the camera switched to wifi (check). I got my iphone dji vision app open and mounted to radio (check). Everything is now connected, powered on and communicating as per the manual. the copter is sitting on a table and i'm reading the manual trying to figure out how to calibrate the compass. I did all the voodoo steps. switch the switch a dozen times, spit over your shoulder, hop on one foot, rotate the copter clockwise, throw some more switches, say a prayer, turn the copter sideways, repeat said prayer, rotate the copter again... Did it work? WHO THE HELL KNOWS! The lights were flashing green to orange.....green to orange.....green to orange.... (you get the idea)... so I looked at the low tech card that was dangling by a string from my controller and guess what?????....... can you believe that every color combination known to man was on that card except the one I was experiencing. How is that possible?? Ok, since my color combination wasn't on low tech dangling card, I must be good to go......right? So now the copter is on the grass in my back yard, as per the manual, I hold the sticks down and sure enough the copter blades start to spin (idle). with the copter on the ground, i looked at the iphone but couldn't tell if there was gps lock. i'm assuming there wasn't because the altimeter said my bird was 4 ft in the air and the speed was 5mph all while idling on the ground in front of me. Of course the bird is still flashing green to orange....green to orange just sitting there, so i add some throttle and the bird takes off. I was able to keep it hovering at 2 to 4 feet but had to provide constant adjustments to keep it still. Next thing I know I hear the throttle going up and the bird starts to climb all on its own. I did not move the stick forward, I had to fight it to get it back on the ground. so now the bird is on the ground sitting at idle, i'm just looking to make sure every thing was working. the iphone was connected, FPV was operational.....all of the sudden the fucker throttles up and takes off!!! (my hand wasn't anywhere near the sticks!) again, I had to fight it to the ground. Rough Landing At that point, I powered everything down and did the system wide REBOOT. As before, still flashing Green to Orange...Green to Orange. I was able to hover again at 3 feet, but after a minute the bird took off and climbed to ten feet... at least it wasn't sitting on the ground this time.... see progress I had to fight it back to the ground. It was at this point, I turned everything off and came in to type this ridiculously long winded message. HELP!! WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!
