    Front should be red. What are the back lights doing? And what do you see on the controller? Should have all green.

    All green on controller is good. AC and RC are linked. How about flashing Yellow & Red? Compass calibration required.

    Went you get that quad fired UP........i'll tell you ONE thing...be ready to control it ! Keep it in Beginners mode till YOU are sure you can fly it OK !
    READ Read your manuel !

    The person that sold it to you should have flew it outta of that box to prove its OK !
    New they are $399.00 and will sure Fly right out of box after " its activated " !

    Sorry, I just couldn't hep mai'sef.

    At this point in my experience with DJI, I'm leary about buying their products NEW, muchless used. I own a P3S and Spark, and the Spark is the least hassle-free so far.
