    Hi guys,

    Ive had my Phantom for a few weeks now and today I was installing the pitch lever on my phantom transmiter to pitch my gimbal. When I put everything back together and tried to power the transmiter on, no red LED light. I installed new batteries but still off. Anyone have any clues as to why it suddenly failed on me?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Open it up again and look for a disconnected wire perhaps.

    I'm having a similar issue after doing the potentiometer install on the 7th channel. However, I get power only if the knob/potentiometer is turned clockwise. If i turn it all the way CCW, it cuts power to the transmitter OFF. It also does NOT control the gimbal. I followed all the instructions and it doesnt look like anything is loose. Im stumped!
