    Today I've started my first flight with Vision + and Ground Station "light" - means with the android app.
    I've setted up all waypoints, everything was done - so press GO button.

    The Phantom starts the take-off, but for not known cause (it was in the grass, the field was rugged)
    the take-off has failed, the Phantom head stands... It's ok, but in this second I tried to switch of the
    rotors with the "standard way" - but it didn't stop. I've realised the "GS program" is running, so however
    the Phantom is in the field, on in head, legs upwards - I can't - or I don't know how can - stop the
    rotors as fast as I can. What I did :

    take up the Phantom with my hands ( the rotors are working )
    I've try to use standard method again to stop the rotors - nothing
    Then I select : "coming home"
    .. and then use again the standard method - and finally the motors has stopped.

    But it was to much time.

    Question : is there any faster (better) way - if the take-off failed during autonomous flight (after You press GO button) - stop the rotors ?
