I recently had to replace my motherboard and now I can’t get the drone to recognize the transmitter. I’ve heard I need to send it in to have it resinked

If you mean the main board in the Q500 itself, you do not have to send it off. We can help with that.

But please, first confirm that is what you are working on.
If so, we will start by asking what color is flashing on the rear main LED of the Q500 itself.

First, You did not mention rapid red flashing of the Rear Main LED or rapid blue flashing, so can we assume the board initialized and you were able to get a bind with the controller?

The rear 2 are flashing red
This indication normally means the flight battery has low voltage. Is the Drone battery fully charged?

the rear light on the main is flashing blue and orange
Not a listed pattern. Is there an chance you are seeing green and orange?

The outer 2 Lima are rapidly flashing red 3 times there is a blue light lit on the arms also.
The center light on the body I was green on start up but then goes to blue and orange. After a minute the outer limb lights stay on a constant red

@Kellywest,
Can you video this sequence and post it for review?
Are there any beeping sounds coming from the drone?
Is there any chance you crushed or cut any wires during installation or shell assembly?

Is there any chance you plugged the GPS unit into the LED socket, and the LED unit into the GPS socket?
Have you put it on the GUI to see what it tells you is wrong?
