    I just got my phantom 3 advanced. I just finished updating the firmware, calibrating the compass, and connected it to the remote. and its connected fine. But when i try to make it fly. it doesn't move. it doesn't do anything.

    "It doesn't do anything" what does it mean? Did you start the motors first ? Are you getting any messages?

    Sorry for not being clear. I tried pushing the left stick forward to start the motors but nothing. IS there a way to start them

    Oh yes, you got to move both the sticks down close to each other to start the motors first. Once motors start, pushing left stick up will fly it up.

    I suggest you to read the quick start guide again. Don't be in haste to fly it up.

    You need to set many other settings too for safe return.

    Also watch DJI videos before taking it off.

    If you do not know how to start, how would you safely get it down and stop motors?

    Please take the good advice of @alokbhargava and do not fly in haste. Please learn about your aircraft first. Please.
