    Help !!!!! Phantom 4 Motors Clogged with Confetti

    I am a 13 year old boy living in America. I run a small (microscopic) Aerial Photography Business in Pittsburgh, PA. Last time, when we were photographing a Party with my DJI Phantom 4 Pro, some idiotic kid aimed and fired a Party Popper at my Drone, filling all the 4 Motors with Confetti. The...

    Standard P3S Crash into Ocean- possible hardware malfunction

    Last week on the fourth I was out at the beach flying my P3S that I've had for about 18 months. The drone seemed to be working fine and I had just taken it out on another flight. The wind was gusty, as you'd expect from the coastline, but nothing worse that what I've flown it in before. As I...

    Motor speeds

    Looking at the top of my P3 4K I am sure that one of the CCW motors does not seem to be running as fast as the others (it certainly seems to look that way when viewing the props from above). If I take off to hover, the AC starts doing circles around some hidden point almost like the old tether...

    Phantom 3 Standard Motor not working out of the box

    Hey there all, So I recently got my phantom 3 (finally!) and took it out for its first flight today. However when I tried to take off, the phantom instantly crashed to the ground and I noticed that one of the propellers weren't spinning. Luckily I was next to a bush so it landed without any...

    Motor & ESC/Centreboard inspection

    In an unnecessary rush I've made a stupid error and killed my P3A - persistent ESC errors despite all the standard troubleshooting. The story is: after some routine maintenance I used the wrong screws (too long) to mount the motors, I assume the majority of the damage was done when trying to...

    CSC Questiom

    This is going to sound like a dumb question especially since it is called a "Combination" stick command but I know CSC's are the #1 reason for crashes so I figured I would ask - After landing, holding down the left stick for 3 seconds turns off the motors - My question is, if I am descending...

    First time flying it. Motor Burned Out.

    This is quite interesting. I just received my Phantom 3 Advanced yesterday. And I am taking it for a test run. And after about 10 seconds of flying it in the air, one motor supposedly burned out(And I received "Motor Obstructed") warning. Then it flipped sideway, and tumbled to the ground. It...

    Phantom 3 - Motor Failure

    While landing my P3Pro on Wednesday evening during a sunset flight, I noticed an unusual sound. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that one of the motors was on the verge of complete failure. It appears that it started to unwind itself. The motor was in normal condition when I performed my...
