    It's been awhile since I posted anything; too busy flying. I had a high speed impact a couple of days ago, and only just got to examining the damage. I broke a couple of blade, and my gimbal mounting plate; new parts for that on the way already. I powered the unit up and got the dreaded Red Green Yellow. I plugged the unit into my computer, and got an immediate notification of Error 25, crash detected. Short of ordering a whole new system board, does anyone know what specifically could be broken/damaged? I hate to replace the whole unit if there's some fix available with simple remove & replace components. Any & all help & suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Christopher Hardcastle

    It's possible you just need to calibrate the IMU in the Assistant software ("Advanced" section)...do the "full" not "basic" since you've had a crash.

    Inspect your GPS module's top-side too for a cracked patch antenna.

    Results of calibration were nil. It says calibration process complete, but I still get the IMU Error 25.
    Anyone have idea what specific component I need to replace?

    Additional: no results after removing the NAZA controller and giving several sharp taps on a tabletop, as suggested Ina YouTube video. I guess I'll j st have to order a new controller.

    Before replacing anything, try loading default settings from Tools page, then do adavance IMU calobration, stick calibration & compass cal.
