I am all booted up and connected but for one problem -- i can not get the phantom to enter compass calibration mode. s1 switch (the right side toggle switch) up and down 10 times -- nothing happens, and i still have blinking yellow or blinking green indicator lights.
What am i doing wrong? Thanks
A few things to double check come to mind.
Are you sure the phantom and the transmitter are connected/paired?
When switching the s1 ( the toggle on the right side of the transmitter ) are you going from the very top, to the very bottom, up and down ten time, ending in the up position? It may be going from the top to the middle position! Just a thought in case you didn't realize it's a 3 position switch.
Lastly, are you waiting until,the initial warm up phase is over and it goes into the gps mode with slow flashing green lights?
Hope something in this helps, good luck, and safe flying.
