    Sure it's IMU? did not realize the IMU controlled the start up of UAS's? Sounds like a control module more? Hard to be sure!, Do any lights come on, start up sound when you push the H start button? Hope you get it fixed soon !

    This is a bit worrying, did they give you any reason why you can't buy the part?

    Not right ! I am sure it will be though! Or is it a calibration thing, to get it to sync with the main control board , and mainly factory bench doable?

    OP - Have you posted over on RCGroups about this as well?

    If not, this is the second IMU failure on an antenna modded "H".

    Could be a issue modding the H antenna and affecting the IMU? Good point Sticks!;)

    That would suck if better antenna's are causing a higher power flow through the IMU and cooking it.

    Yeah and I tend to agree about heat being the possible cause. I'm in the UK so don't see the same kind of temperatures, but after flying on a sunny day I felt the top of the H and it was scary hot. I chose to let it cool down in the shade before flying again. Black is cool but not a help on hot days.
