    To turn on the battery, press and hold the circular button just as you would on the Phantom

Questions and Answers

Battery says it's charged, but the drone says it low?? Help?

Plain and simple the battery has 4 green lights, but the drone shows red lights and won't spool up. Whats the problem???. Thanks,. Pete. They don't cover my problem, and using lipos for planes it doesn't seem to be a poor amperage problem with the battery. BTW, both batteries do the same thing. In addition, I just bought this from my neighbor. He's clueless.............. Pete
