    Been having some issues with my gimbal slapping around a bit while in flight. Seems to work fine on the ground... I noticed today that my GPS indicator on the app is not lit. Shouldn't it be on? I read how the GPS is used on high g platforms and I'm wondering if no gps lock is my problem. How can I reboot it? I've checked the connector to the gps sensor and it's tight... wondering if anyone can throw out some options?

    And again, thanks for any guidance.

    Below is the chart for solar weather, Steven. Any chance you were flying during the recent solar storm? The chart is, as you can see, in UTC.
    But yes, I would have expected the GPS to be able to get a fix. How long did you happen to leave it powered up on the ground before you took off? Just wondering why it didn't get a lock.
