Any idea what cable colors must be swapped to invert motor direction?
Tried to invert the escs connectors that goes in the DJI controller for the motors that were spinning the wrong direction but that made that motors unresponsive and their escs didn't stop beeping!

you need to swap 2 of the 3 motor wires - not the esc connector

You can always assign Elevator>Elevator to a switch of the radio channel mixing to get smooth forward move. And also Rudder>Rudder for panoramic capture.

Excellent idea, and have just done the rudder mix. Flick a switch and I now get a slow pan 360° in about 45seconds! Thanks for the idea! Now I won't keep hitting the throttle when doing a pan!

Go in to a free mix and do a mix with it's self! I'll take a picture, easier then trying to explain.

It's pretty cold out and therefore my fingers are shaking a bit sometimes when I fly, with this mix, just flick a switch and turn the gain up or down depending on speed!

So I put the newest firmeware on the controller and the latest setup software on my laptop.

I reset and set carefully every parameter the upgrade instructions demands.

After this, I set the "start/stop motor" behavior to "immediately". According the manual, this is the procedure I like to see: pull throttle below 10% and everything is silent in every mode (which is fine because I have an emergency switch moving "gas" to minus 150 just to be sure - had already a serious accident with WKM where this didn't work in ATT/GPS mode).

After everything was set up, I moved all switches into "manual mode, no fail safe" and verified this via USB software control.

I gently moved the throttle stick, but nothing happened.

So I picked up my 2500 Gramm Quadkopter and put it on my desktop to check every cable.

After some pondering and reading the manual a flash of inspriration went though my brain - does the new software requires the "arm" movements of the sticks?

I carefully selected one of the stick-arm-movement which will keep the throttle below 10% and was surprised: my quad started all rotors.

Unfortunately it started on my desk with my face between the two back - and my monitor, records, keyboads, pills, gadgets and other stuff below the two front engines.

Well - at least my emergency switch worked.

I had a lot of fun with the emergency doctor and the responsible suregon when I told them my story.

They will take care of my scars in my face when they take the stiches off in 20 days.

I am not amused.

I think it's necessary to read a manual ............. Is n't it?
