How did you attempt to start it? What happened instead?

Hello Peter, I'm sorry to hear that your phantom won't take off. I'm sure that someone in here will be able to help you.

You live in an interesting part ofEngland - I used to visit fairly often when I worked as there were a number of brickworks down there that I was responsible for.

Just as I normally do. Battery in then press and hold the button for a few seconds and ...... nothing instead of booting up

We do see this question come up from time to time when someone hasn’t used their drone for a while and they forget the power up sequence.

Are you doing a short press, release, long press sequence?

As stated above, both the remote and the drone need a double press to start. Short followed by a long press.
Please reply if it works or it doesn’t so we’re not left wondering.

Hi, Thanks for your reply and this is where i've got to
I've tried that ... alas .... the drone it's self started but then would not switch off. the controller only has one light lit and not charging ... i'd not used it for about 6 months
I looked on youtube and it looks like the controller I need to take apart and heat the battery which could cure that something to do with its memory, the drone i'm not sure about
I think i'll have a go at the controller first
Pete
