    Im flying P2 H3-2D with LB and Futaba 14SG. Evereything worked fine before LB update today.

    Both ground and air unit on LB have all been upgraded.
    LB app on Nexus 7 upgraded.
    Everything is upgraded on the P2 asst software as well.

    When I turn everything on:

    I get video feed to app and telemetry.
    Two greens on the LB air unit.
    P2 lights are slow repeating yellow.

    HOWEVER no input from the Futaba 14SG does anything.
    The sticks dont register and neither does any of the other channels controlling flight mode or gimble tilt.
    If I disconnect the Futaba tho it says connection lost/ failsafe mode on the app screen.

    D-bus is connected to receiver type on the P2 asst software and the software also doesnt recognize any input from the radio.

    Its as if somehow all the channels on the radio no longer work for some reason. I've tried multiple profiles on the Futaba and all dont work.

    HELP!

    wow. seems like I have the same problem

    P2. H3-3D. GPH3+. LB. F14SGH. Note3
    all upgraded to the last firmware and software.

    However I never used LB and Futaba before,
    its just coincidence that i was installing it when the new firmware came out
    so i cannot confirm that it was working before the new firmware

    all i see is video/telemetry on the Note3
    flashing yellow on P2
    no response from the futaba whatsoever.

    at first i thought its because the futaba is just untouched out of the box and i have to do something with it
    but now when i see am not the only one with no response to the movement of the stick problem might be the firmware.
    actually all i did to futaba is to switch the RF Off as per instructional video

    Shaunmed: did you tried to ask DJI directly?
    please any suggestions? i have now useless 2000 USD worth equipment

    There is nothing wrong with the firmware. If you have flashing yellow on the P2 then you are in failsafe. You need to adjust the endpoints on the Futaba channel 7 while watching the U channel in the Phantom Assistant to bring the P2 out of failsafe. Then the P2 will recognize the other control channels.
