Crashed my P4P. Broke the lower shell, gimbal and landing gear. Immediately noticed the OA icon in GO4 was red as if I turned off OA. I checked the setting. It was on. So clearly seems to be damage to sensor or wiring resulting from crash.

Sent it to DDS for repair. They fixed everything for a reasonable price but before shipping they called and said the sensors are not working and they think it’s a software issue and I need to send to DJI.

Noooooo. :-(

I pleaded with him that this isn’t software. Not related to anything they changed. This was clearly crash related. Please take another look. He said they had never seen a sensor failure before but agreed to re-evaluate given my info.

If anyone has any clever info I can pass along to them to point them in the right direction I’d appreciate it. Or if they decide they can’t fix it then what can I look at to fix without sending it to DJI for a second repair bill.


TIA
