    Just got the Phanton 1.1.1 today.

    Going by the Quick Start Manual Expr5ess V1.0 included with the Phantom....

    Step 1
    Connect Assistant Software for IMU Calibration

    Step 2
    Charge Battery

    Step 3
    Fit the Propellers

    Step 4
    Mount the landing gear with compass

    Step 5
    Compass calibration

    Is there a better step by step somewhere?

    Seems a bit difficult to do the IMU calibration before the battery is charged and before the landing gear is installed.....but if that's exactly the way to do it, could someone let me know?

    Shouldn't it be like...Charge Battery...Install Battery....Install landing gear....Connect Assistant...install props??

    You just made the top of my "Funniest Posts of the year".

    I love it... ROFLMAO :D:D:D:D

    My advice, if in fact you are serious. Use common sense interpolating the ChiEnglish instuctoneos you done recebved.

    Enjoy your new P1 :)

    Yes, it takes a sense of humor sometimes right?
    I wonder how many people couldn't get past that? :p

    My fear, not the greatest fear, but it's up there... is that soooo many folks just don't get it. It's "HUMOR" for crying out loud.:D Learn to laugh

    It doesn't take a video of some kid being a total idiot to be funny.

    My fear, and it's way up there, is that we've become an "idiocracy" and it DOES take a video of some kid being a total idiot to make people laugh. :eek:

    Yep, you might be right. I'm sure the percentages are on the rise. :(
