    Well, be sure to read the manual.
    download them all from the DJI website

    and watch all these videos!

    Are you waiting for a solid single been blinking light?

    once you get that,. to start the motors you need to do any of the stick combinations that are shown in the Quick start manual (page 13)

    And it takes a good minute or so before the lights stabilize and you get just a single flashing green.

    Like Gizmo said, watch the videos from DJI.

    Did you arm it? The manual tells you how.
