Your not going to get the help your asking without more detail. Not just "can not get it to start up".

Have you read the manual ?

Msnual start is both sticks down and towards each other .... left stick to 5 o'clock, right stick to 7 o'clock .... once started both sticks release. Left stick just up from bottom for idle.

But better way is yo use the Auto Start / takeoff via the App. BUT FIRST READ MANUAL AND KNOW HOW TO COMMAND TO LAND !

Download manual from DJI site. Please do yourself a big favour - read it !

Do you have sticks at mid position ? If you have left stick all way down then it will inhibit start up.

But please read the manual first so you know how to get her down again !

I would agree with solentlife that it sounds like you have the throttle stick stuck in the down position, which shuts off the motors. Just for reference, here's a playlist for tutorials on the Phantom 3 Standard:

That's so out there, are you being serious. And beside, don't hijack someone's thread. You should be starting your own, as this is not on subject.

Get yourself a screen recorder and record the screen of the DJI Go App, then post it here, maybe then we can see what is happening. BTW, are you doing this outside or inside?

No problem, but with any forum on any site you should always try to keep your posts on subject within a thread. It's okay to ask a question within a thread, but it should at least be somewhat the same subject matter. Otherwise it's best to open up your own thread and post your question or comments. Happy flying.
