    Hey everybody. I have an emergency. I am on a shoot with several issues.
    1. No video image from camera is being displayed on iPads.
    2. LOUD buzzing noise in cone.
    3. Landing gear will not lower or raise. Landing gear is stuck in Landing mode and will not raise for flight. Also, I can tell I1 to go to travel mode and blue tail light will be active, but landing gear will not be lowered for travel mode.








    Any ideas how to solve issues while on production location?

    Sounds like an issue with the worm gear. Can you manually try to turn it? It might just be stuck in place and can be freed with a bit of a twist.

    Make sure nothing is blocking it from moving

    The worm screw moves freely.

    We got live camera feed now, but still have buzzing and can not lower or raise arms.
    What is FC?

    Is the FC the Ncore component? The fan on it spins freely and the I1 can take off for flight with movements, but the arms do not lower or raise.

    DJI Inspire 1 Ncore component

    Yes that would be it. Has several names from being called lightbridge, N core, flight controller and a few other. Pull the plastics off .Take the 3 screws out of the black wire cover on the right hand side and remove it and unplug the servo motor for the landing gear. It’ll be the black plug with the gray,brown,and black wires and see if it stops buzzing. If it doesn’t problem is either the power board or the fc. Does it do it with any battery you use or is it happening with just one or two batteries?
