I can connect without any errors. Just that the sensors do not move. .Altitude, GroudSpeed and all indicators are 0.0. Artificial Horiz does not move when I move the Quad.
Richard, I tried that with no luck. It loads the firmware fine but still nothing.
The test of the INS and compass fail so I beginning to believe that the board is dead.
I wish it wasn't so it's only 2 days old.
Interesting I just saw this
open a terminal
It states No dataflash inserted3COMPASS INIT FAILURE

I found this post where Al Lowrie states that he had the same problem. It was caused by low voltage from a regulator chip. It is supposed to have 3.3 v I have 0.24 volts. Looks like this chip is bad.
Al Lowrie states
The TPS79133 (SOT23-5) chip is new on the APM2.5.2 board. It is a 3.3v regulator. I have only 1.3 volts at the output pins.
I did buy it from 3DR. I have emailed them I am waiting for a reply. I am not sure they will cover this but I guess it's worth a shot.
When it worked (for about 15 min) It lifted off. I wanted to make it go to the left a little. I gently pushed the stick to the LEFT a hair and the thing shot to the RIGHT like a rocket and slammed against a fence. Do you have any idea what could have caused this?
I am using 3dr radio but it was not hooked up at the time. I did have it hooked up initially and it worked but I unhooked it for the test flight.
