    I couldn't stand it anymore!! Due to my work schedule, I haven't been able to get out during the day to fly my phantom yet. So I moved some stuff out of the way and hovered a bit in my kitchen. Can't wait to get outside this weekend with it.

    I'm sure you blew some dust bunnies far from their comfortable corners.

    There's a lot of finger-wagging over indoor flying, but if you take reasonable care, it's not the home wrecking catastrophe you'd think it is, especially if you're testing settings that can be easily impacted by wind.

    Cool! :)

    Why are your green LEDs flashing? That's something I've never seen on my phantom.

    I am pretty sure mine flash like that too. I thought that was normal, but now I am not sure.

    The Phantom 2 uses the LEDs on the arms as status indicators.

    From what I have read, green flashing lights means the Phantom has located GPS and is ready to fly.

    Watch the beginning of this video. The Phantom 2 is supposed to do this. Slow green flashing lights. Thanks
