The low light warning is common unless you are in sunlight or very bright conditions.As to the other problem,did you charge the battery?

Thanks for getting back to me . My batteries are fully charged . I hit the
Launch button and if spins for just a few seconds and does not lift off . I configured at all positions and tried again but still no good . Do you think the firmware update is an issue or perhaps I put the propellers back on the incorrect motors ?

To me it sounds you are trying to launch from the Throw & Go feature. If you don’t throw it, the propellers turn off. Am I correct?

I just got off a chat with remote support and I may have reinstalled the propellers incorrectly . I did change my propellers but I am finding not all props are the same . I will try it again and let you know . Thanks for the reply

You will have 2 props with a mark near the center. One of those go in the front right motor and back left motor. The ones that don’t have the mark go front left and back right motors. Still that should make it flip, not turn motors off.
