    When I push the levers down to put the engine on, it nothing happens, only the bottom red lights flash once.
    On my tablet, no indication, everything seems ok, I have 8 satellites, the return picture etc etc.

    Make sure you're pushing down AND towards the middle?

    Standard trouble shooting questions:
    When did it last work?
    What changed between then and now?

    had a similar issue a few weeks ago, advanced calibration seemed to sort it out, took a few attempts to calibrate successfully but it worked. I think the software upgrade was part of the issue (3.12) but all works very well now

    Are the lights flashing yellow and then they flash red when you try to arm? That usually means something (GPS or compass) is disconnected.
