    Is this a one time thing? Or can you repeat it?

    It is the only way I can start the motors every time, probably 12 times.
    Noticed aircraft status shows red dot - system error
    Also red "need update" which I thought l had done as when dji go app starts banner on top says"Phantom 3 standard firmware downloaded"
    Many thanks for your help .I find the DJI user manual lacks detail.
