Holystone HS720 won't take off

Hello, complete newbie here. I got this drone for my birthday, had it for a couple of days. I seem to have successfully calibrated it. The drone is connected to the app. The rotors spin, but it will not take off, despite pressing the take off button. I think that it could be an issue with the GPS. Also the drone is on Mode 2. Any ideas? Many thanks.

@JAndrew17, welcome to dronepilots forum.

I personally fly DJI and Autel drones, so I am not familiar with Holystone drones. With that said, we do have a few articles that might help with your problem, listed below:

I’d be interested to know if either of these resources worked in your case. Keep us posted, and once again, welcome to the Dronepilots community.
