If you mean the mission planner in the configurator (vice any of the 3rd party tools), entering "Bing" as a search term in the forum search gives the following, all of which describe how to get satellite maps in the configurator.

I think you are referring to the initial setup screen of INav.

The movement you saw on screen is in relation to the arrow on the FC board, not how it's visually depicted on the screen - after all, how would the computer know in which direction you were actually pointing the board in relation to the computer (screen).

Pressing the Z axis button simply shows the image with the front pointing 'into' the screen. It doesn't affect any of the board settings, it's just to make it 'sensible' for the human to look at.

Glad to got it sorted, though.

Stall and spin....this is something that had not crossed my mind, even though I've read about the Z's tendency for this. I'll triple check CG and my flying speed next flight and be ready to go to manual (one thing I have not tried). That means however I'll have to learn how to fly again, since those skills have surely atrophied due to INAV's superb stabilization modes.

Two things, however, that still have me looking for an electronic, hardware, or setup gremlin are from the one instance when the lockup happened while climbing up mid launch sequence, and the other where I had it lockup in my "virtual simulated" crash, fwiw, on the ground. The elevons freeze and absolutely do not respond to control input.

Again, I really appreciate the input and thank all who have looked into my blackbox tale of woe. I'm going to wait till the new servos come in this week and replace them before taking to the air again.
