Hi ... the landing gear keeps getting stuck in up position ... it works fine going from down to flat.. but a soon as it goes into up position it will not come down for landing ... is there a adjustment for this... ? ... it feels like the arms are going up to far... when i hold it in  my hand when the gear is up and give it the ccommand to lower i feel the motor try but nothing happens... yes it is well lubricated...

Could you clarify what kind of surface are you trying to adjust the landing gear on?

Hi Jamie... this is only happening when i take off and put the LG up... i have had to catch it, and do a slight adjustment with a screwdriver and then the LG will lower... it seems to jam in the up position ..

Did you happen to notice this after a firmware update or a hard landing? Have you tried toggling the vision positioning system? Are the sensors clean?

Have you tried cleaning the VPS sensors? Have you also calibrated the IMU as well?

Look inside the boot of the Servo motor that lowers and raises the gear, make sure no bit of gear are getting chewed up in there , if it looks ok add just a bit of 3 -1 oil or sewing machine oil , NOT WD -40.  also add just a touch of oil at all the hinge points on the outriggers and booms where it twists during movement .

This should fix it as long as it is not out of gear mesh and just a tad dry on the joints and gear.
**** I did read it when you said it is lubricated, just make sure the booms and riggers  get some oil also , any joint that moves with the landing gear going up or down lube , check for anything being to tight  also that may need adjusting .
