    I am at my wits end with it... It will not accept this damn command, no matter what the surface.

    What happens if you initialise travel mode from the app? Does that work?

    In that case, flip your Inspire on its back and CAREFULLY insert a screwdriver into the slotted screw that adjusts the worm screw drive. Give it about 1\8th of a turn and try again.

    Thanks... Interestingly it works every now and then. If I let the thing rest and start again it may work... No issues to lift the legs. Give me a min I will video it

    Try my suggestion, I think your worm drive just needs a tiny adjustment.
    Let me know how you get on.

    Just picked up our new unit & after upgrading firmware took it for a test flight . We experienced exactly the same issue , comes out of travel mode no problem but it's problematic getting it back into mode. Tried 3 times and the gear kept going past travel position into flight position ( fully up) . Recycled the power and it eventually worked . Tried again when at home to figure it out and of course it worked perfectly ! No problems raising or lowering gear in flight just getting it back into travel mode. Is this a bug with the latest firmware or have people experienced it before then?

    Editor. You sir are a God! I have to admit I had my doubts... Thank you, thank you, thank you.... I was worried I wouldn't have her for my flight assessment on Tuesday. If I could buy you a beer I would

    Haha, I've been called a lot of things before (most of them bad) but never a divine being :p:p:p.

    Glad it worked. I've seen a few of them that just need a nudge to get them working in travel mode again.
    Where abouts in the UK are you based? Where is your flight assessment?
    RPL lite, BNUC-s or RPQ?
    Good luck.

    RPQs ... I am based in Newcastle but my assesment is in Gloucester as it is the only place in the UK that RPQ can do night flights.

    Hopefully my PFAW is in my hand by middle May.

    Tell me about it... Yep, loads of conditions on it now... But they are approving them. Certainly since the beginning of the year...

    OK, thanks for that, I need to check that out.
    I've seen the bulletins on substitution of sub 7kg craft without the need for further flight assessments (although some NQE's are trying it on still :rolleyes:)
    I've also seen a relaxing of CAOSC but not night flights :)
    Thanks for that.....
    But....you still owe me a beer!!!! :p

    Yep :) ... I am going buy what Resource Group have said. I can't find any conditions say NO sub 7kg at Night. And they guys at RG have accepted the Inspire1 for a night flight. So my assumption is all ok.

    Again, thanks for you help. I was adamant it was a firmware fault.

    Apparently these guys had FULL permission.... Would love to see their safety case though.
