    Hi guys,
    I updated the Firmware to v3.12 using the Naza-M assist 2.12
    I'm wishing I didn't.
    I use a Futaba t8j transmitter with its appropriate Rx fitted inside the Phantom.
    All has been well with this setup for the last few months. No complaints, no glitches.
    After the update - which all went great - I powered down, powered up, carried out an advanced calibration - all good, callibrated the sticks - all green, powered down and went outside to try. Did the Guinn-Step Dizzy-dance - successfully - and waited for the new light sequence to phase through. All settled quite quickly to a constant double-green.
    I'm assuming this is normal - pre flight.
    Arming the rotors - all good.
    Throttle up over 10% and they stay idling - all good.
    Increase to over 50% - no launch.
    Through 60, 80, 100% throttle - nothing, continues to idle.
    Input from the other axisses - pitch, yaw, roll - causes an audible increase in motor speed here & there.
    So all signals are getting through (including throttle because it accepts the +10%unput) but nothing more than that.
    Any ideas? I'm drawing a blank.
    If anyone knows of a way to succesfully revert to the 2.02 Firmware is be gratefull to hear about that too.

    Cheers, grounded and annoyed

    I'm pretty sure someone posted the exact same problem a while back, but I don't know what the solution was.

    Yes, I just read that one. Exact same problem - no solution as yet.
