I've inherited a Phantom 1 drone; it was flown once several years ago. I've charged the battery w/ the DJI charger (set correctly, charger shows green when charged), and calibrated it and the transmitter using the NAZA-M software. The software appears to show that the drone battery is charged, the transmitter is bound to the drone (green light inside the drone when I power on both devices),  but when I take it outside for a test flight, the GPS light on the drone rapidly flashes red and nothing else happens.
From what I've read, it seems like it could be a battery issue (not balanced properly?), or that I should be able to see the error in the software. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Iconrad..
Not familiar with Phantom 1 but a quick search of the internet brought up this YouTube video.
Hope it may help or maybe DJI administrator may chime in with solution.

Sounds like a "linc " problem according to user manual

Iconrad..

Thank you, I will try calibrating the compass again. I did isolate a rattling noise I was hearing; one of the LED lights on back of the ESC has come loose. I wonder whether that could affect my ability to power it up. I would like to re-attach it but am not sure how - haven't found anything online yet about how to re-attach the LED, just how to replace the ESC.

I had a lamp come off my esc and it had no effect other than that the lamps on that esc didn't work.  Maybe you could show a video of exactly what is happening with the AC.
