    I crashed my drone into a tree breaking the camera. However it still flew just fine. Today I swapped the camera assembly which seems to work fine, but now the control sticks will not get any of the motors to spin.

    All other controls work. The iPad app works. Etc. it just won't sling those rotors.

    Any ideas?

    Try recalibrating your remote controller in DJI GO.

    Nope. Didn't get it.

    All the status appears fine. Dumb question. Does everything have to be all screwed back together before it will work? I'm trying to test it out without outrun all the screws back in.

    It should still fire up, but why did you have to take all the screws out to replace the gimbal

    I also had to replace the landing gears and bottom chassis.

    FYI. The takeoff button in the all works and motors spin up.

    Fli- is the only way I can fire up motors, I've tried everything but won't fire up with moving both sticks down and then over.
