Just got a P3P to keep my P2 company.

It flew fine. Yesterday I updated to the new software. Log file says I got a good update. Now when I try to start it up I get:

ESC status error, turn off the aircraft
& restart it again. Contact DJI support if error persists.


Does anyone know how to fix this? I googled it and saw people with the inspire 1 that had this message but not any P3 users. I am thinking this thing is toast after just 1 flight.

Thanks for any help.

Try an IMU calibration. Doubt it'll work if its a true error, but maybe it'll reset a fake error. Gl

When you say calibrated, are you talking about just the RC calibration of the sticks?? As soon as I get back home I am going to try that but wanted to understand what exactly you calibrated.

Thanks

I did the RC (transmitter sticks) recalibration and nothing has changed. I even relinked the transmitter and then re-calibrated and still a no go.

Anybody else have any ideas?

Guess what. I did the compass calibration and now the message went away and it starts up fine. Did my first flight. Weird but working.

I recalibrated the controller as well and then it seemed to work fine ubtil I shut the unit down and then came back...very hit and miss with more on the miss side...worked a couple of times and the esc error keeps coming back...seems like a software glitch to me.

check the motors and make sure there is no debris or restrictions keeping one of them from turning.-- Make sure that all spin freely. Small screws or small pieces of metal caught in the magnets of a motor will cause an esc error.
