    Phantom 2 w/H4-3D Zenmuse. So after the compass calibration is complete and you get the green flashing lights meaning its OK to fly, how can you tell how many satellites you have locked onto? I've heard and read not to fly with being locked onto 6 or less. How can you tell how many you have locked onto?

    You will get 2 sets of rapid green flashes meaning your good .
    The best way is a iosd & fpv setup all that info is on a screen .

    When the P2 locking onto the home point you'll have rapid flashing green LED's and once locked in they will be slow flashing green.

    As 750r mentioned the only true way to know how many satellites your locked into is by having a FPV system.
