    Hi guys, Im Ruben from portugal, im in panic with my Dji Phantom.
    Everything is updated and calibrated in my phantom and when I start flying the green leds are showing that everything is okay! But when im flying sometimes as it stops blinking green and starts blinking yellow and red and starts to fly alone or begins to pull in one direction for a few seconds and than returns flashing green. What should I do to solve this problem? Tks!!!

    The red and yellow flashes are indicating that you don't have 6 or more satellites locked by the GPS at that time....the Phantom will switch in to ATTI mode automatically (yellow flashes) when that occurs. When it regains a 6th satellite it will switch back to GPS mode (green flashes).

    That is weird. Have you crashed? I'm wondering if you have a compass issue. Did you try calibrating the IMU?

    I did the fix on You Tube for the GPS cable putting it under the copper sheet and it seems to help with the satellites.
