    Flying Phantom 1. I hit a tree at about shoulder height. It was a slow movement into bushy trees so no hard whack, but it did fall a few feet. I have had a lot worse crashes. This was really so negligible.

    I can now take off for about 6 seconds, then it comes to do an auto land. I thought a faulty battery but the battery is fully charged. I have 8 to work with and it does the same on the few I tested. I put the phantom one the bench and plugged in the usb and ran the naza software. It shows exact voltage I register on the volt tester we all use. Any way to figure this one out? Any suggestions how to get it to stay in the air?

    hi. sorry to hear of your issue and i was trying to think of a way to diagnose the problem. what happens if you start it up without props? or remove camera and gimbal and see what happens in atti or manual. naturally, you did open her up and check everything? reseat all the naza m connections also. good luck
