    I did have a little mishap with the landing gear in a previous crash and it seems like it did more damage that I first thought as the landing struts wriggled loose on the last flight and have broken wires to both retractable landing screw (don't think I am meant to fly drones) even after a heap of successful flight early on. I have ordered 2 replacement
    Landing Gear Worm Servo's. That is probably what has chucked up the error maybe there was a short.

    Is there a way to disable the landing gear as I have never lifted it in flight. Do you think that may be the cause of the error?

    Its in my Avatar profile. Sydney.

    I see. A Worm drive failure can do a lot fo damage.

    There are modifications to do to prevent them from destroying other parts of your craft.

    You need to run them off their own BEC and have them fused.

    Cheers

    The general most common failure if you blow a worm drive is it takes the mainboard with it.

    You will know once you replace the worm drives if the mainboard is damaged.

    I dont know of any drone repair companies personally. I did find one on a search some time ago I think it was in Victoria.


    Cheers
