    Good morning fellow Phantom pilots. My Phantom 1 was fling pretty good one day and then all of a sudden it went ballistic and crashed into my neighbors roof. I recovered it, cleaned it up, put new blades on it and tried to fly it again. I aligned the GPS, got the green light but the controller beeped non stop until I flipped the switch. But when I commanded it to takeoff it just sat there. Now what do I do? Numerous attempts were made but no such luck!

    With the limited description ...I doubt I can help. Align the GPS...flipped a switch...?? Don't know what that means.

    After I tumble the Pantom I get a green light telling that it has acquired the satellite. But the controller still beeps, but after I toggle the GPS Att1 and 2 switch the controller will quit beeping. So I assume it’s ready to fly. I then pull the two toggles down and to the center but nothing happens. The blades are supposed to rotate but nothing happens.
