    Ok. Tonight I hooked it up to the computer just to take a look at the software and I noticed that when I go to the IOC link and click on the checkbox to enable OFF, CL and HL it does not work. I move the left toggle switch and it does not move between the three functions on the screen. It is like that switch does not work. I know the checkbox is checked but nothing. Am I doing something wrong? I watched Collins video on it and I did just like he said and nothing.

    Anybody?

    I have set my Phantom up for IOC and I am having the same issue. I believe that I saw somewhere that it does not work in 4.0.

    No, it works perfectly well in 4.0. You may have to plug and unplug the Phantom and/or USB a couple of times, and if that doesn't work, do a compass calibration and an advanced IMU calibration. Basically if NAZA Assistant can't initialize and "see" the compass and GPS, it won't let you arm IOC in the settings.

    For a check, click on the Upgrade tab in NAZA Assistant. If the GPS isn't showing up in the list under Main Controller, with a hardware ID, then it's not initialized and you can't enable IOC. (I will say I never saw this problem *before* 4.0, but it does seem to crop up periodically in this latest firmware.)

    Worked like clockwork. Did the IMU and then the compass and those options came alive!! All is better. Man, I love the internet. What did we do before forum boards? The best technology ever!!

    Thanks guys!!
