The AR.Drone has already been used with another iPhone
When you connect the AR.Drone to an iPhone and start the AR.FreeFlight application, the 2 devices are paired. Before you can use the AR.Drone with another iPhone, you must unpair the AR.Drone from the previously paired iPhone. To do this:
The iPhone and the AR.Drone are too far apart
The Wi-Fi signal is distorted
The AR.Drone is already connected to another iPhone
The AR.Drone has created a new Wi-Fi network because it is unable to detect the one stored by the iPhone
The AR.Drone has the same name as another AR.Drone nearby
Turn off the other AR.Drone then rename your AR.Drone. See the question "How do I change the name by which the AR.Drone is seen by my iPhone?".

There are 2 types of LED on the AR.Drone: the 4 motor LEDs located close to the propellers and the system LED located on the belly of the AR.Drone.
Wait for 20 seconds after having connected the battery to the AR.Drone, then check the colour of the system LED. Avoid turning the AR.Drone upside down when you check the colour of the system LED. It is better to simply raise it high enough to look underneath. If the LED is green, you can take off. If after 20 seconds the LED is either red or orange, disconnect then reconnect the battery.
