    I had a hardt crash and I am getting accelerometer errors. Can anyone tell me where the accelerometer on the inspire is located. According to some phantom owners one can tap to reset. I am also wondering if it is replaceable.

    The accelerometers form part of the flight controller and are integral along with the mems gyro unit.
    You would need to remove the entire FC unit and then try the old NAZA trick of giving it a VERY hard knock onto a flat table top or similar. There is no guarantee this method will work though.
    This only really works for a stuck accelerometer and the problem you have is you do not know if it is stuck or totally faulty.

    Thanks. Do you have any tips on removing the FC unit. Is it the black box in the front under the nosecone.?
