    I replaced the mother board. I replaced the Main controller. Then the Receiver board. The controls are completely backwards! Plus the power is declining. Now what? Replace everything?

    Did you run the assistant software on a PC and see if the channels are inverted there?

    The way it all started was a spark jumped the gap when I went to plug in a Brushless Gimbal(backward). It fried the gimbal and the QC. Ive been tiring to get it right ever since. I ran the Assisted software of coarse, which has a habit of saying "Phantom too hot, power down 5 min and retry". Tx channels? what are those and where?

    Run the Assistant software, hook up the Phantom, then look under Basic, RC. Beside each channel axis is a button that should say "NORM". When you move the sticks, you should see the axis display move similarly. Click on the Norm/Reverse button to invert the axis.

    CityZen has the right advice for the controls issue, and you can ignore the "MC too hot" message, old bug in the software.
