    Did you make sure you were outside when you calibrated it. I just got mine and I did it inside not thinking and it never calibrated. Make sure you install the drivers too off of the website or it won't connect.

    I'll be getting mine tomorrow so I can't add too much yet, but just from a general IT standpoint, definitely make sure you have the latest software/drivers from DJI's website and that they are the correct versions for your Operating System.

    Slow yellow means it can't get any GPS satellites. Take it outside, turn on the controller, then the Phantom, you should get green.

    Were you able to get the GPS sorted out once you got it outside?

    Mine arrived today - going to wait until the weekend to open it, though. I'm afraid if I don't, I'll have to use a sick day and stay home to fly. :D
