No radio check calibration bars-answers?

On new APM1 system, the instructions went smooth up to setup -radio check. No variable bars. on exit all 6CH read 0=min  3000= max.  Latest AMP, new hardware, arduplane software. functional Tx.  Servos follow the stick OK!. Modes switch OK, params load OK.

Conditions. Platform levels, GPS locks. Stick to surface OK, Tx and Rx LEDs functioning. Mavlink connected and working,  CLI switch in 1 position (away from connecter pins). All new system and my first experience with it.

Any advice would be appreciated. Looks like I can fly without the calib since everything is OK but might be risky.  Thanks Mike Cowan

    sounds like the board is not seeing your radio inputs. on the base board is the blue ppm led flashing?
