Did you have at least one successful flight or this is the first time to use this unit? Probably the problem is in the channel settings in the ST16. All this will be viewed from the logs. Just upload them.

Depending on the level of damage you can get near the same money if you sell it as parts. Due to a lack of parts, a crashed CGO3+ only can be sold for $50 or something like this.

yeah I had it out flying a few times with no problems everything worked fine with no problems made sure to calibrate the drone and gimble it was just that one flight yesterday everything seemed and looked perfect right up to i pressed that red button it just went straight up without even going up five feet into a hover to put the landing gear up it just went straight up into the sky until I couldn't see it then just came crashing down without any warning or faults with no control over it

Trust me, you aren't alone. One of mine started chasing me once.

The problem is with the red button. It was stuck. This will give a behavior 1 by 1 as you have told us.

Check the ST before powering up the drone at the beginning of the flight day.

Delete the copy you opened using Excel. (Excel corrupts the data in a way that makes it unreadable by the program most of us use to review the logs.)

Get a new copy of the file from the ST16 and upload it here for review. If you want to use the instructions for the whole upload process as provided by Post #2 of this thread, just click on the link in that post.

The program most of us use for the review was written by @h-elsner. A copy of the program and the instructions for using the program can be obtained from his website:

LINUX 64bit:

To add to @WTFDproject says, be sure the files you save include the Telemetry, Remote, and RemoteGPS for the flight in question. The Telemetry alone does not provide sufficient information to make a proper analysis.

Wow! I was testing mine yesterday because I haven't flown it in a while. My partner and I were practicing Team Mode at low altitude and it crashed hard into a fence! He claims he didn't crash it or lower his angle on the wizard. Now that I'm reading this thread I am second guessing the incident...
Any thoughts?

Flying in Angle or Smart mode on the Wizard? How far away was the aircraft from the Wizard?

Not sure what gets recorded in the flightlogs when flying team mode with the Wizard. You can try following the instructions in the previous posts to collect and upload the flightlogs for analysis.
