    Had this problem before but it seemed to sort itself.

    everything works ok up to when I have to flick the GPS/ATTI switch to get the constant Orange light. It just will not stay constant orange. When it GPS mode it will flash green twice and when it atti mode it will flash orange twice.

    I have upgraded to the new firmware and calibrated the IMU and transmitter but still wont let me get GPS lock

    Any ideas ???

    The 2 GREEN flash in GPS mode and the 2 YELLOW in ATTI mode mean one or both of your TX stick is NOT center.

    When you say TX you mean transmitter yeah?? But the right one has to be all the way down. Never had this problem before or am I completely wrong in what I'm saying???

    Sorry mean the left stick is all the ways down and the right one is center. Is having both of them center the new way of getting GPS lock with the new update??

    The left throttle (up/down) is always at the bottom when start then once you get the motors start by executing the CSC, with the new update you have to move the throttle up to the middle and wait for auto take off. This has nothing to do with the GPS lock. NAZA will locate the satellites for you and once it locked in 6 or more and confirm that by rapid GREEN 20 times then you will get single GREEN flash in GPS mode or single YELLOW in ATTI mode.
