    Hi there!
    I have a bit of a problem with my rodeo.
    It stopped working mid hover. Everything shut down on a full battery and fell.
    If i put on a battery it will only give me 3 short beeps without the second 2 long beeps. FC works via usb.
    So after reflashing it and cheking everything on cleanflight, it still wont work. I would guess the powerboard is dead becouse vtx also wont start. But the front lights still work, if i put on a battery.
    So, please help me fellow racers to fix this problem, i realy dont wanna pay half of the value only for shipping and then realising thats not the problem.
    Thank you in advance!!

    Something similar happened to me, is there any visible damage on any components? Or have you had any crashes?

    Yes i had a lot of chrashes. I taped the frame so it was fixed in place, while i was waiting for a new one.
    I got a new frame now, and i moved every component from the broken frame to the new one. Everything seems fine, but components wont start, front lights show up, and i get only 3short beeps

    Try cleaning the fc ribbon with some rubbing alcohol and make sure it is sat in there properly.

    That's beyond me sorry, try it anyway and see if it does anything. If not, no harm done.

    If in your crash you had the VTX power on and the antenna came off then it burned out your VTX.

    But check you have it turned on with the switch on the main board.

    Cheers
