    Ok so took my p2 out on the boat today got it all fired up in my hand whilst looking for somewhere to launch it from. Placed it down on top of the engine to see what that was like and after about 2 seconds of it sitting there the colour sequence changed from the normal naza- green and one red (hadn't found all satellites yet) to suddenly a quick yellow and red flash??
    Hadn't touched the transmitter at all so removed it off the engine and the colours went back to the normal green then red flash. Tried putting it back on the engine a few more times and every time I got this colour sequence? Anyone know what this is about??
    Cheers

    I believe this is compass interference, caused by placing the Phantom on or near a metal object (such as an engine). I had the same issue when I placed it on a picnic table with a metal frame.

    If you download the manual, there is a chart with all of the LED sequences explained.

    Compass error too big. Avoid metal surfaces, concrete with rebar, power lines, ect.
