Have had about 20 flights, took it to florida -always at my side in a hard shell case-inside case is foam cut outs. Did an upgrade before flight then stick-error, beep beep, couldn’t remedy. Tried everything over last 2 months with no luck. Calibration impossible because left stick is dead. Right stick is fine. Deleted app, reloaded, same problem. New remote $375, not much out there for a fix.
Any ideas?

It really sounds like the left stick in the controller is not making contact inside. Wait for more comments and then decide whether to open and look for a loose wire or connection or do a warranty repair order.

New controller is alot less than that and I can repair it for even less. Where are you located?

Gentlemen, we were all 1 or 2 post newbies at one time. I was too (10,000 posts ago).

New remote per amazon $375. I will take apart but I m far from an expert.
Patrickmich, Thunderdrones is very good at what he does and reasonable. He helped me with my Spark. But maybe you'll find just a loose wire when you open up the controller. Hope it is something so simple. Sure "seems" like that stick is not able to "connect."
