    The downward camera can not detect the surface to calculate the required distance for travel mode or exit travel mode, try placing it on a different surface.

    Landing gear will not raise. Its activated in the software. Vps is off, does vps need to be activated for the auto landing gear to work?

    Right off, I would say No, as I've been using the (Auto Gear function) with VPS disabled.
    You may want to try turning off the auto landing gear function, and reselecting it to the on position specifically when all components (Radio, model, and GO App ) are powered up and connected. Hopefully, that will work for you.

    If the above doesn't work - nudge it 1/8 turn with a screwdriver through the hole on the bottom giving access to the worm drive.

    Duh....the manual landing gear switched was turned facing down. As soon as I flipped to the upper position, everything works. Retracts on lift off.
