    After the crash did you re-calibrate the P2's IMU? If not do so and then re-calibrate the compass and you should be good to go.

    My P2V+3.0 gets gps and flies just fine, but I have constat red front and constant green rear LEDs. Is this a IMU problem?
    Thanks.

    Solid Red fronts mean motor start. Continuous slow flash Green in rear indicate sufficient GPS sats. acquired.

    There's no solid Green rear except after 1st half of compass calibration.
