I just received my Tradecraft Case for my Inspire. As with the Tradecraft case that I have for my Phantom 2's this is of the utmost quality. On the case it is noted to be water proof and it has a vent for traveling in an aircraft. I wish my P2 case had this feature. Opening it after a plane flight can be difficult. On the inside is room for the Inspire in ready to fly condition, you do not need to enter transport mode. There is plenty of room for two tx's, props, the gimbal case, lipos and misc. items under the 4 lipo box. Note that this is not for carry on, the case is too big but for checked luggage it should easily stand up to the handling of the ground crew. You will have to carry your lipos in your carry on however. The case is not a light weight, at about 25 pounds, but it has rollers and a extendable handle. The only issue that I have had with the Tradecraft cases is that the handle is difficult to extend with one hand. It takes two. Not a major issue just an irritant when you have your hands full with other stuff.

I had to reset the landing gear. If you look around and follow the wires coming from each leg, you will see they plug into a R & L and there is an IN on a small block. Next to the IN is two little holes. The one closer to the L & R has a little button inside the hole. the next one to the right of that hole is a light. It's likely that it isn't showing any colour.

This fix will take two people.
1. Make sure the gear switch is in the DOWN position
2. With the power off. use a small screwdriver or paper clip and push in the button.
3. Set up the drone so that that the landing gear aren't touching the ground. I rested two of the arms on a desk and supported the drone via one of the other arms. THEN...
4. Push the button and hold it there while the other person plugs in the batteries.

It should go through a reset and then you will see the little light come on. You should be back in business! Try the landing gear lever and with any luck you'll be back in business.

Thanks to user Aitrui for putting this together. He did quite a bit of research to do it. Maybe it will help others.

A user came up with a procedure for resetting the BTU on the Ground Station. Here is the link;

This appears to be a solution for those who are frustrated with Ground Station's lack of Photogrammetry.

This is a very through review that was done on MRF. It compares the TMotor Props, the DJI original folding props, and the new 1552 folding props.

After many questions on how to determine COG I have added this to my blog to make it easily accessible.
