    Every time I turn the radio control ON the phantom 3 pro the control flashes a red light and starts beeping until I move one of the control sticks, then all goes to normal, is that the way is suppose to be.
    Is the remote control suppose to be calibrated ??
    Thanks

    Haven't ran into that but there is a controller stick calibration through to Go app. I would definitely do that and see if it clears up.

    That specific behavior indicates a need for remote calibration.

    When you do the calibration, don't forget the wheels. They are part of the calibration so you will see it on the screen, but for some reason people overlook it frequently.

    The video states. ..turn phantom and then controller...is that right ? Aren't you suppose to always turn controller and then phantom.

    It has changed, Yes now you turn on the controller, than the phantom and than open the Go app.

    yes. thanks again for all your help, but im still having the issue with the flashing lights, 5 greens and then 2 reds, I think is due to been on a no fly zone by altitude I am about 2.5 miles from a major international airport

    If that is in the US, then yes. That is No-Fly. Take it out a few miles to a meadow in the country and give it a whirl.
