    Hey all,

    I accidentally crashed my Phantom II into a tree and as a result had to open it up and reconnect a wire back to the NAZA controller. But the problem is now it crashes upon takeoff:

    Can anyone confirm the correct locations where the Phantom II's cables should be connected to the NAZA controller? Thanks!

    You said you accidently creased into a tree indicating it was working correctly initially.
    It is pointing to the repair you made may be the culprit.
    As mentioned above some pics will help.

    I would bet you have the top shell on wrong, check the alignment where the directional stickers go.

    Well, this has been highly embarrassing--I flipped the cable over and now it works. Leaving this thread here just in case someone googles my same problem.

    Thanks EMCSQUAR and everyone else!
