    I took my P2V apart earlier today and painted the case. Upon reinstall I thought I had everything reinstalled correctly. Drone powers up with battery turn on sequence, but motors will not turn on whenever I hold the joystick controls in angled position. Not sure if the flight controller is miswired or what could be the issue. All the batteries are charged.

    First thing I'd do is check the calibration of the controller.

    Hello,
    can you explain EXACTLY what it is doing when started up.


    Example
    Turn it on, then beep-beep-beep-beep, the slow yellow flashes, ect...

    We need to know light sequences they tell a lot.

    Like if your getting fast yellow blinks, you'll need to rebind Tx to bird? Ect.

    I have these for you to cross reference yours to.

    Thanks for the photos J Dot, had 1a/1b and 2a/2b backwards. After a day of replacing parts from a crash and new case. Test flight was 100% operational and landed safely. Will test it more tomorrow during the daylight hours.
