    Normally when flying my Phantom 2 the green lights are on in the back and the red lights are on in the front

    This morning after calibrating the compass the lights from yellow to green in the back but the 2 front lights were off

    Tried turning off/on and repeated with same results

    Batteries charged
    Controller on with 2 switches in the up/out positions (Left switch = off / Right switch = GPS)

    Any help appreciated

    "The front LEDs are for indicating where the nose of the aircraft is. They light up solid red only after the motors
    have spooled up."

    I assume you have started the motors?

    Hi NO17RW

    Thanks for your reply

    No I actually didnt start the motors up for fear it would do a flyaway

    I thought for sure that in the past that the red lights were on when I calibrated the compass but I am glad I was wrong

    Thanks again
