    I've troubleshooted through the manual and can't seem to figure out why my drone won't take off. The compass is calibrated, the drone slowly flashes green, and then when I try to start up the drone, I get three shirt red lights.... Please help!

    Maybe you're in a no fly zone ;)
    Are you close to an airport?

    Can you send screen shot of your phone?
    Maybe rebar in the ground? If so put in on a box or find another grass field.
    Damaged compass/GPS??
    Something needs calibration??

    According to the LED list:
    Flashing ALL red could be:
    Low Voltage or Other errors
    Calibration or other errors

    In ATTI mode 1 yellow, 3 reds = less than 5 sats
    In GPS mode 1 green, 3 reds = less than 5 sats
