    Just a quick video to help out the new guys out there
    who just bought a DJI copter and are wondering the proper
    ON and OFF procedures.

    We have seen some crazy ways people have been turning
    their copters on and off.
    So we wanted to clear the air!
    How do I turn this thing "ON" again?

    **PS. Make sure to remove your camera gimbal holder and lens cap before doing this!

    Nice video for the noobs --- but I find that instead of counting 2 seconds on the 2nd button push for power on --- I just watch the green LEDs light up sequentially and let go as soon as the 4th LED lights up. Then, I do the reverse when powering down (wait until only last LED is lit and then let go).

    Maybe it's just me, but I find this a more reliable way to learn how to power batteries on/off than just merely "count to 2" :mrgreen:

    You power your camera off independently after every flight, dirk?? Any particular reason?
