    I cannot manually take off. (I try the opposing transmitter stick thing but the motors do not start).
    Take off is great using the go app though.

    Am I in some kind of funky mode that manual takeoff had been disabled?

    If you cant start the motors with the CSC-- combined stick combination-- then it sounds like it. What mode is your controller set to? Should be on Mode 2

    I am in mode 2 (throttle left stick, aileron/elevator right stick). My right switch is at the top (gps mode)

    Pretty sure it must be a setting on the go app.

    Did you try calibrating your remote controller in DJI GO?

    I had the same issue with my P3S this afternoon. So I calibrated from the app and it worked.

    I have had the same problem. Been searching for what to do. I have followed instructions, hoping this fixes it for Me too.
    dji instructions are so basic. They miss loads out everywhere.
