    Hi.

    After a few frustrating hours i've come here in hope of some help. Ever since 1.7 update my inspire 1 will not enter travel mode. It says to detach the gimbal which isn't there and sometimes makes a little click as if was going to travel.

    Also while it is on the ground pushing the raise/lower wing switch once either way will make the wings extend from ground setting to flight setting, or other way round.

    Currently

    DJI GO iOS upgraded to v2.7.1
    Camera version v1.7.0.90
    aircraft version v1.6.0.40

    Have downgraded/upgraded in various combinations and tried various surfaces.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    Sometime ghost gimbals require a priest to exorcise the evel demons in them or......you can try flipping the inspire over on its head (when switched off) and using a screwdriver through the hole on the bottom to turn the wormscrew drive a fraction (sometimes they stick and refuse to initiate travel mode). Then give it another try.
    Failing that, sprinkle holy water over it and run.

    You have to flip the switch at least 4 times

    This manual screw moving should do the trick, worked for me when Inspire ignored my 4x toggle switching. Also, in latest version of iOS Go app, Enter the travel mode command is accessible at the very bottom of aircraft status page ... You must scroll it down ...

    I recently had to flip it at least 5-6 times.

    After trying repeatedly to get mine into trave
    Had mine in the house and on the carpet and tried maybe 15 times to get it into travel mode and no luck. Finally picked it up and placed it on a smooth table top and it worked perfectly!!
