    Hi,
    I just changed the shell on my Phantom due to an accident.
    I was able to re-assemble everything into the new housing, but I cannot get the motors to initiate.
    The Phantom and Zenmuse responds to everything, but I cannot get the motors to start.
    Any suggestions?

    Do the LED's light up when it's powered up? Have you calibrated the RC unit and done a complete calibration of the P2?

    Anytime you get a problem like this, hook the Phantom up to a computer and run the Assistant software.
    Verify that the controls are working in the expected ways by looking at their onscreen representations.

    What flashes you getting?
    Rapid yellows = rebind controller or check the daughter receiver board.
    Do you have FPV? Check GPS. The GPS plug is very loose. If the Phantom does not detect the GPS module, it wont start. Place some tape or a wedge to make sure the plug sits firmly.
    Redo Adv IMU calibration - do this after a crash. The phantom wont start if the gyros and accelerometer is out of whack.
