    I've got a Phantom 2 plus. I recently flew into my solid Cedar fence and crashed about 3 feet down onto the lawn. It has survived a couple of similar impacts in it's 25 flight life. this time however, while all systems such as smart phone data and drone light's seem to indicate flight readiness, the motors won't start when I pull the sticks in. How do I diagnose and fix this problem?

    Stay away from cedar fences??? ;)
    Seriously, sounds like time for a DJI repair.
    You might try recalibrating the IMU, as any impact can throw it out of whack.

    Yeah, open sky has been working well for me lately. I had a brainwave about a low level yard shot. bad idea.
    How do I calibrate the IMU. Is there a program to download for diagnostics etc?

    You might also check the calibration of your controller
