    Try connecting the GPS receiver and see if that makes a difference.

    You could have a cooked FET in the inverter stage of the speed controller. Did you solder the motor fly leads directly to the main board pads? The cutting and splicing hack brings a lot of people unstuck. The individual wires are insulated and need to be carefully prepped (scrape of insulation or immerse ends in a molten solder bath).
