    Hi guys

    Quick question...

    I normally do a pre flight check at home make sure everything is working before setting off and as normal the h3-3D works fine.

    Transport p2 to my car sit it on the passenger seat drive to location..

    Turn on everything no movement from the h3-3D grrr... On the odd occasion?!?

    It's happened around 6 times now from around 20 flights and originally I would turn off unplug etc and keep trying until finally it would spring into life, I now have a quicker way of getting life into it...

    Basicly I give it a little tap.. It then springs into life freaking out all over the place restart the p2 and its fine?

    I have also noticed that transporting the p2 helps ie if it's a rough drive and the p2 moves about in the car I get the issue?

    Anyone had similar know a fix? I'm gonna invest in a mount clip which should solve it but surely a little knock while its off shouldn't kill the thing?


    Cheers

    I transport mine upside down on the backseat without a a gimbal lock and have never had problem in two years. But it sound more like you have a poor connection in either the ribbon cable supplying all three motors or the gray 8 pin cable to the gimbal not fully seated.
