    Hi All..

    Hoping someone might know the answer. Recently fixed my camera connector after a bounce (the plug snapped off). All was well, until...

    Right after, plugged in for calibration and upgraded to v3... so unfortunately, don't know if it was the upgrade or the repair, though I've done hardware repairs before and all I did was open, remove a bad cable and plug in a fresh good cable, so doubt it was that.

    -- Get compass-err when plug into assistant
    -- GPS doesn't show at all "---" in assistant
    -- On iOS app, can't see satellites, battery life, or control camera. But I can see the video in FPV... but that's all
    -- Batteries all read as not as intelligent battery

    Not knowing much about the inner workings, it's as if all the telemetry died. I'm getting the red/green/yellow flash that indicates "problem".

    Did an IMU calibration to be safe. But I have a doorstop.

    Any ideas? I looked up/down/left/right for a disconnected internal cable, or frayed cable. No dice... all connected firm and tight.

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Try downgrading back to the last known working firmware version. You can find old versions of the Assistant here if you haven't still got them yourself: http://droneslinger.com/software.html (Courtesy of member Gunslinger)
