    First off I consider myself pretty tech savy, but this has just been a nightmare!

    I started with the manufacture gimbal that was jammed so I decided to upgrade to a better gimbal.
    http://www.goodluckbuy.com/dji-phantom- ... oller.html

    I installed the gimbal and configured it software wise so it was working. I went to put the phantom's shell back on and I accidentally shorted out all 4 motors with too long of screws. So I bought the new 2312 motors and V2 speed controllers. I have them all soldered in and hooked up just like the old ones. Now when I go to start my phantom I have constant flashing yellow lights, the little red transmitter light is not working, my gimbal goes berserk and of course the motors won't start.

    I have checked all of the firmware and tested the connections of every solder. What else could be wrong with this dumb thing?

    Constant flashing yellow usually means that there is no transmitter connected to the receiver

    That is what I have found in research; however, I do not know a good place to start other than completely replacing the receiver board inside the phantom. Quite a bit of money and work if that does not solve the issue.
