    after my phantom 2 starts up, two of the propeller LED's stay red? The propellers start up and are being controlled by the remote. Also I cannot get it to go into calibate mode. Ive tried putting the s1 and s2 switches all the way up and flipping the s1 switch up and down 5 or 6 times and nothing happens??? any ideas whats going on?

    When the P2 is first powered on all the LEDs go through a startup sequence an once the sequence is over the front LEDs shut off until you start the motors stay solid red until powered off. In order to do a compass cal S1 is toggled down an up 5 times the rear LEDs will turn yellow and when you complete the 360° horizontal rotation they switch to green. After doing the 360° vertical rotation and it was done correctly they will flash yellow/green. Maybe you should read the User's Manual here's the link:
