Thanks for the response. I have tried what you said twice, re-installed the assistant and trying to power the MC after it was plugged in and the same thing. fast blinking red, CFG-ERR(8) and no response from the motors.
Anything else than you can think of that I can try. Id really like to get it flying this weekend.
