    Hello everyone,

    Yesterday i was tried to fly with new carbon props. during the descend is started to wiggle (vortex ring state)
    It came down from about 20/30 meter and landed on the gimbal.

    Carbon props broke and gimbal is damaged now, with and without gimbal it is not flying as it should be.

    What i already did:

    -Advance calibiration
    -Basic calibiration
    -Compass calibiration
    -Fly with and without gimbal
    -New (plastic original) props

    Can anyone help me to fix this?

    Might have damaged components inside phantom?
    Or loose connections, broken solder joints?

    Also I did not see calibration for Tx on your list?
    First calibrate Tx through ( RC ASSISTANT )
    Than calibrate Tx to phantom. In ( PS ASSISTANT )
    Might help!

    Take care, fly safe!

    Redo your advanced IMU calibration and note the compass #s. They should be between 1200-1800. After that do your compass calibration - in that order.

    at the very extreme, check your motors.
    If they became dislodged or the arms are slightly bent, that could happen as well.

    In your video the Phantom rear lights were flashing green and red indicating you do not have enough GPS satellites for GPS mode and so the Phantom will switch to ATTI mode. In ATTI mode you Phantom will be blow about by wind. Your GPS antenna might be broken.
