    Hello guys

    I recently replaced the S1 switch on my Phantom 3 Standard. Even though the new replaced switch clicks into 3 different positions the top position (P-GPS) is not working. I can set the modes to Atti and IOC and it's showing another mode called F-GPS which I don't remember seeing before!

    Is there a reset of the remote required ?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    F-GPS I think it means that the remote is seeing S1 to be in the bottom position (F-mode) and there's sufficient GPS satellites being detected. That's useful info because if you then switch S2 to HL, this flight mode requires satellite lock.

    Not sure why P mode is not working. Maybe check if the switch's internal contact point configuration are the same as that of the original switch.

    My lanyard just came lose and the RC fell onto the floor and broke my S1 switch. Where did you get your replacement ?
