    Guys,

    This morning Im ready to go flying and when I turned it on the Inspire is just beeping and I get these errors on the scree
    1- Main controller connection to center board failed
    2-Gimbal cannot receive main controller date

    then it also says:
    Check the 8 pin plug that connects the damping plate and the aircraft. Ensure that none of the pins are loose..
    Where is this 8 pin connector??

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Rick

    The other end of those cables plugs into the vibration absorbing board. (Other side of Gimbal connection.)
    Have you done any FW updates recently?

    I stopped doing them 6 months ago as I constantly read of bugs in the updates here and on other forums.
    I have had zero problems since......
