Betaflight F3 Won't Arm

I built a new 5 inch right before I moved. I got it unpacked and went to finish the config and it won't arm. I'm pasting the result of the status command below. It says the board is calibrating the sensors, but I let it sit for 10 mins and it still wouldn't arm. I'm out of ideas, maybe bad board?

Just checked the sensor tab, and gyro doesn't move at all. 99% sure it's a bad board.
