    Have you armed the motors by holding both sticks down to either the 7 or 4 PM corners?

    Best regards,

    Be sure to watch all the videos..
    and don't forget to put your name on it just in case!

    two things that DJI really should educate users on prior to flying!!

    Hi, I am Chuck and I just join this post a half hour ago. I bought the Phantom at Ircha just two days ago, and had problems right out of the box (broken compass) Before I left, I had the luck to go to the DJI tent where the engineers diligently worked on it and test flew it. Fine group of people, but did not tell me I had to arm the motors. I couldn't believe that the first post I came to on this forum took care of my problems.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Chuck
