    Problem!

    After upgrade?!

    Without propellers:
    1 - When I arm the Phantom and lifts it up and lean it forward, the rear motors revs up. That is wrong! The same backwards. It flips immediately.
    2 - When I arm the Phantom and puts stick forward, forward motors revs up. That IS wrong!

    Dammit! Why? Reversing the transmitter shouldnt help, the Phantom leans (followed by a flip I guess) anyway.

    If you unplugged the motor connector from the Naza, make sure you plugged it back in the right way. The red wire goes to the outside edge of the Naza.

    last year i bought a crashed p2v and did not know that the last owner while trying to repair it had flipped the motor plug over and it was doing the very same thing. it took me two weeks to figure out what the hell was wrong. flipped the plug back right and she flew like a charm.

    Upgrade: USB -> Assitant -> upgraded all of the updates + transmitter.

    The owner said it flew fine before I got it (because of gimbal-issue, which was a connector-problem outside phantom).

    I guess it must have been opened... and that some cables are shifted (havent checked). Ill do that.

    In the off chance, look in the Vision Assistant, and find the setting for type craft and make sure "quad rotor" is displayed

    One cable was reversed inside the Phantom, weird. It works as it should now. =) At least the motors reacts as they should. Testflight later.
