I am having a problem that started yesterday at the flying field.
I had a few minor brushes practicing flying thru some air gates.
After I checked the I am having a problem that started yesterday at the flying field.
I had a few minor brushes practicing flying thru some air gates.
After I checked the Vortex out for any apparent damage I lifted off into a hover and everything seemed fine until I went to climb out at a high rate of speed and thats when the vortex just fell out of the sky. Luckily I wasn't to high and had some soft grass to land in. (Has some strange clicking noises when this happens)
After a bunch of testing what seems to be happing is that one of the motors or escs under a load fail and I guess it also causes the other three motors to stop.
Most of the time when this happens the vortex flips backwards and to the left rear
I filmed this in slow motion with my iPhone 6 and it definitely is the left rear thats acting odd.

Any Ideas would be helpful
If I can find one I want to order a new esc and motor to start the troubleshooting process

Thanks

You don't.. You just explain how you fixed the problem so others can learn from it
