Still have all red lights?
Have you taken the time to do an advanced IMU calibration after the crash? It also has to be done on a level surface also the Compass Mod Levels should be no lower than 1300 or higher than 1600.

this is what i have done sofar:
I power on the phantom he does the selftest,but i only hear one serie of beeps my old one does 2 whit a little pause in between.
if he is done he blinks yellow fast when i put on the remote the yellow lights blink very slow.
i pull the s1 switch 5 times and turn the phantom acw and the lights turn green then i do the same with the nose down no he starts blinking yellow instead of the green what should.
I try to start the phantom but it wont ;(
Have done the calibration basic and advanced pictures are here below

For one thing, the compass mod is too low. I would like to see a full screenshot of the upgrades and tools page.

After a crash always do an advanced IMU never the basic. It's also a good practice to do advanced IMU at least once a month. The Compass Mod looks good.

Without going back through your post didn't you mention you changed controllers? If so is it a DJI unit and have you paired it to the quad? Doing sticks, X1, and X2 calibrations are a waste of time if the two are not paired. If it's DJI controller give me the model # off the back tag. If you haven't manual here is a link:

When you say you've changed the flight control are you referring Naza model taped to the mainboard? If so I'd like to see a good detailed photo of that module front and back for the wiring connections. I would assume you didn't take a photo before changing the module and you may have plugged it up wrong.

What are the model numbers of the controllers you have and which one would not pair up?

hello jason here are some pics of the flight controller and how i connected the wires.
the numbers of the controllers are DJ6 and PVT581 they will only connect to their own quad.

Check the back plug on the controller that it's plugged into the Naza module correctly. Bottum row with brown wire to the left. the only photo you didn't send.
