    with a freshly charged battery. ( all my batteries in fact) . Still loving my Phantom and was filming stills high above last week. I noticed the red light and immediately dropped it back in and as this was happening directly above me it lost all lift and came in fast. I was lucky enough to catch it, only breaking the factory camera mount in the episode. Charged up a couple batteries and since then it warms up gets the green lights for GPS lock all fine. Once I arm and power up and lift it it immediately goes red and loses its lift. Did I damage it in the catch , the batteries all tested fine with 11.0V. I havent hooked it back up to the computer yet. What should I do or look for ? thanks , Peter

    are you getting 11 volts after you charge the battery, if so thats not enough for a 3 cell lipo , sounds like your charger is bad.

    Bonerfortuna is correct. My batteries are in the 12.6 volt range.

    Are you still using the charger that came with the Phantom ?
