    In the videos I've watched when you turn the potentiometer all the way clockwise (FCC mode) this function is confirmed by a beep and flashing led on the controller when it's powered up. When I power on I still get the same led function as I did before. No flash and no sound. Maybe the new firmware is different and there is no flash or beep anymore. Can anyone confirm this? Thx

    It only has any effect on the P2 Vision and Vision+. Does nothing on the original P2.

    If you do, indeed, have a Vision series Phantom...

    As far as I can recall, the flashing green remains the same for both modes... it just indicates that it's linking. The only difference at RC start up between the two modes is it's two beeps for FCC, and just one beep for CE. Just sounds like your "beeper" is kaput.

    If you hook it up to the RC Assistant, it will tell you what mode it's in. Or fly it and you'll discover pretty quickly. CE has only half the range of FCC.

    EDIT: Yep, confirmed

    From http://wiki.dji.com/en/index.php/Phanto ... Controller
    Flashing is normal for both modes.
