In AP mode, there is quite a long delay between moving the throttle stick up and the motors spooling up to the point of lift off. It's a little aggravating but that's how it works. Slowly raise the left stick up to about 1/2 throttle and wait. It's going to take some time but eventually the motors will spool up.

+1 Well said.

This may be true for version one software, however in version 2....

Purple=Ap Mode

Flashing of those colors in flight means no GPS lock, in both software versions 1 and 2.

Do you have a V2 ? Are you using the new 3s 3000 that comes with the V2 ?
V1 with B props and 2200mah packs
5min plus time for landing.. comes down with about 25%+
FPV gear with Actioncam adds a lot of weight for this small quad

without it all I can get about 10min on a 2200mah pack

Sounds par for the course with mine as well. Although I'm getting a little more FPV time than 5 minutes.

People confuse purple with red, and blue. All I say get used to the colors. thanks for the chart, though?

Well I need a new frame now

I was playing around with it again in the back yard and all was well until I hit RTH. Instead of its normal leisurely pace back to home it proceeded to fly at me at what looked like mach 3! After concluding it wasn't stopping I dived out the way as it careered into the wall behind me.

I have nfi what happened, all I know now is I need a new frame. Almost needed new underwear too lol.

Other thing I've noticed is that the first week I had it, RTH was pretty much within 1m of take off point. This week if it landed within 5m it's doing well. Anything else I should be looking for?
