    I haven't experienced that issue yet. It is possible that after the hard crash your drone got unbound (lost connection) to the ST10+ and a quick fix could be binding it again. If that doesn't solve your problem try conecting the drone to your computer.
    You can download the graphical user interface (GUI) software on the TYPHOON product page at www.Yuneec.com. Follow the on-screen instruccions to install and operate the software which allows you to see the status of all sensors, to adjust various settings, check GPS accuracy, update firmware and more using the included USB Interface/Programmer. You might need to recalibrate the accelerometer and the compass as well if after getting your drone to fly again you feel it behaves weirdly. I hope this helps.

    ;)From the looks of the impressions on the wires, it would appear that they were pinched in assembly. Just a matter of time before you would have a problem like a flyaway! Your crash may have helped you dodge a bullet.
