FPV still not working - Udrones Support?

The one I received does not have video and I have yet to get this working.I have contacted them a number of times with no reply. Is anyone else having similar issues?

"Hi Doug, What did you use as the material for creating the legs? It looks like a circuit board or something? Where did you find this?  Thanks Roger"

"flip the arms over and use washers if need be and make the holes bigger where they mount now so you can get the screwdriver though them  of course you could also straighten the damaged part and use washers on them too"

"Hi Forrest, Thank you for taking the time to help me out! I am not sure that I am ready to undertake changing all arms to round tubes. I will have to investigate the cost benefits to these and how to change the existing arms on the 3dr Hexa. "
