    I recently replaced a non functioning upgrade board with a new one. Everything seems to be basically working now, GPS, gimbal control, safe mode, etc, but the motors won't start. Does anyone have any ideas? Is it possible I soldered it wrong? If so, how can I tell? I also upgraded the tx because i broke my existing one, I'm pretty sure I programmed it correctly, but I thought I'd mention it in case it is useful information. Everything seems to be correct in the NAZA-M software. Thanks for any help.

    Hard to know where to start -- so many things could be wrong here.

    Is the TX properly paired to the RX? I'm guessing yes since you mention having gimbal control, which I assume means that you can move whatever slider you have assigned to the gimbal and it responds?

    Is the RX mode for whatever kind of TX/RX upgrade you have installed set correctly in the NAZA Assistant (S-BUS, PPM, etc.)?

    Is everything properly calibrated? All green lights from the LED?

    Probably need a litle more info about what you have done so far to be able to help.
