    Hello all, I recently reshelled my p3 pro and took it out for a test fly. Everything turned on as normal. Calibrated the imu and went to test it but the motors would not turn on and I kept getting error code 45 on my screen. I have the latest firmware on both Rc and bird. I googled this error code 45 and it looks as if it is a prob with the gps not being connected properly or the vps not being connected properly. I turned off the vps but still kept getting the error 45 code as some people suggested on the dji forum. Any other experienced the same issue after re shelling their bird? I plan on opening it back up this weekend if not sooner to see if I forgot to connect the gps properly. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Open it up, check all the connections of cables, especially the GPS.

    Measure twice, cut once. Or something like that.

    Sometimes the simplest things cause issues. One thing I've learned in my career as a technician and engineer is that we, as humans, make mistakes. If there are problems after we work on something, we should just check our work. Good job finding the issue!
