    Has anybody experienced this problem: I landed my quadcopter which has the Powercube FPVision 2-in-1 version and hit the kill switch as normal on my Spektrum radio. The motors stopped and all seemed normal. I picked up the quad and I suddenly heard one beep and then the motors went to full throttle on its own for no reason. Unfortunately when this happened, the blades spinning at full throttle cut two of my fingers pretty bad and after a visit to the emergency room I am recovering. Thank god no serious damage to my fingers. What would cause this happen? Thanks for any insight...

    Scary. And it really should not happen
    I never carry my quad around with battery plugged in, the first I do after landing is to switch off the Runcam Split, and then disconnect the power cable. But even this is a risk, if your head is over the quad.
    This things are dangerous, there is never too much care and respect. I hope you will recover soon, took me 2 weeks to use my hand again after the 6" Racer tried to kill me.
    If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.

    You are right, it should not happen. I was going to unplug the battery but with a bottom mount it could have been even more of a problem. I guess I am going to study and practice the best way to disconnect the battery on each of my quads without my head over them or hands/fingers in the area of the props. Maybe I should just flip them over with my foot before I disconnect the battery. When I picked it up when the accident occurred, I was holding it without my hands/fingers near the props but with the sudden force of the full throttle my two fingers must have shifted some for them to get cut up pretty good. Maybe the designers of these quads/electronics can come up with a switch on the quad to kill power from the battery without having to grab it and mess around trying to disconnect the battery cables.

    I've never been a fan of unplugging the batteries at connectors in order to turn it on and off. A power switch should be designed and used.

    Yes, as each of my quads is designed differently, I've learned grab them out of the way of spinning props. I also unplug them upside down so if it suddenly spins up, the quad flies into the ground. Best placement for the XT60 connector is when it's BELOW the prop line, whether it's a top mount or bottom mount battery.

    Y'all have had the unfortunate accidents already. Stay safe!
