    Yesterday was a big day!

    Gopro Zenmuse install TX / RX swap to Futaba T8J setup with SBUS / fatshark 25mw Video TX internal install with spironet.
    Followed all the guidance videos from HPI Guy on the TX / RX swap to Futaba T8J - many thanks!
    Followed official Zenmuse install video..all went well
    Updated to latest firm where....

    So thought It was all good but it does not fly I ramp up the throttle and the phantom is glued to the deck and is making some major vibrations..I get 3 flashing green lights..not sure what that is but thought green is all good..its as if the propellers are going the wrong way round..wonder if one of the leads is inverted..when connected to the naza assistant all looks great.

    Full loaded its 1.210 kgs with battery & everything which is heavy but it at least should take off

    The other thing the Gimbal kinda goes to sleep after about 3-4 mins and does not reset..unless you power down / up again.

    Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated..

    If you put the top shell on wrong, it will do exactly like you described. You could have it 90 deg. off.
