    Hi. Welcome.
    Did you make compass calibration first?
    Did you recharge compleyely transmitter and drone batteries?
    Did you wait gps acquiring?
    Are you into a NFZ (No Fly Zone)?

    Please check if motors can be startet if GPS support was switched off. If yes then check Sensor and GPS status with GUI. If not then you have probably a known fault that older Typhoon H have problem with pre-flight check.

    Symptoms for this special case are:
    - Drone remains in GPS status "Aquiring" and never gets a GPS lock
    - When GPS was switched off, drone still cannot be armed
    - Altitude on ST16 did not show ~0m during initialization but remains some meters below zero
    - Yaw output in GUI is rotating slowly while drone stands still.

    With this symptoms there is a small chance to get it work when you fall back to an older firmware. But usually you must replace the flight controller board. The root cause of this fault is the IMU on the FC board.

    Hi Bill.

    The Typhoon can loose its
    Hi Bill.

    The Typhoon sometimes has a problem with the ST16 where the profile for the aircraft seems to be corrupted and the the aircraft will not fly. It can be a bit confusing because the camera appears to work but nothing else happens.

    Changing the profile is a quick process.

    Turn on the ST16
    Select the Model Select tab at the bottom right side of the screen.
    Select New Model
    Select Create Model
    Select the Type box
    Select Typhoon H
    Give the new profile a name and then save it.
    Select the new profile and the go to the main screen and select System Settings
    Go through the binding process.

    If the problem was a corrupted profile the process should give you control of the drone. If it doesn't then the problem is more serious however I'd give this option a run before you do anything else
