    Vortex wont take off after it fell out of the sky no warning.

    I had 2 great flights, wont take off now after it fell out of the sky no warning.


    After it fell it will no longer take off, it spins on the front right arm where it crashed the hardest, but the motor is spinning and in right direction etc.


    I have confirmed
    1) Props are on correct motors and all motors are spinning in the right direction
    2) Battery is fully charged
    3) Tried another battery.
    4) Checked clean flight and throttle up gets to 1974 so thats more than enough
    5) Rebinded the Rx
    6) Went thru the immersionrc on screen setup again to recal Tx (Re-run Tx Wizard).
    7) Changed out my Lemon for a Orange Rx, both same issue

    There are 2 videos here


    First one you can see it wont gather lift



    Second full throttle motors are spinning pretty fast but not fast as they should be, also notice motors cut for a second about half way thru right after I picked it up demonstrating why it probably fell out of the sky. Motors cut down right after 26 second mark for about a half second but I have seen this happen even longer.



    Ed,

    Try to re run the TX wizard. Hold the Led board button for 8-10 seconds to reset the wizard.

    No but that's for spin direction not calibration so wont make a difference as its spinning the right direction.

    if you want to exclude any software problem reflash CFwith chip erase you can go to 1.9.1 and osd fw .15 and run the tx wizard at the end.
    i hope this gives you back some joy
