    So 15 seconds into being an Inspire owner..... I lost gps, inspire drifted into tree in front yard and crashed from about 15ft. I checked everything out...no obvious damage. Read directions and calibrated compass( which i should have done in the first place) and everything worked great. Flies awesome, no problems..... when i went yo put it back into its case, it wouldn't fit very well. After further inspection, it seems as if the left side t-bar seemed to have spun inside the T. Both landing gears are relative to each other on that side..... but they are both pointed in towards body of machine slightly. I loosened up the screws on clamp that holds t-bar on,but it still doesn't seem to spin. There is a big nut that is on the bar also......I loosened that a little , but that didn't seem to do much either. It seems to fly great.....no complaints, but i was just curious if anyone else has dealt something like this. I only ask because with the t-bar turned in ever so slightly, it does change the propeller angles.

    Hey next gen pilot!!
    Welcome to the forum!!
    Sorry you had a touch of bad luck!!
    I had a crash on my third flight with my phantom so I know how you feel..
    Since you crashed that will probably void your warranty..
    You might want to have someone take a look at it though so you don't have a failure in mid flight..
    I didn't see your location in profile so I'm not sure where to send you..
    There's a place in San Diego that might be able to help you..
    Anyway..let me know if I can help..
    Turbo...

    It stops lateral movement on the motor booms not rotational so do not touch it!
