    I have flown the phantom many times. I went to turn it on today and the two counter motors turn very slowly, or barely turn. I have tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions?

    I've never heard of that before. The only thing that comes to mind, is that maybe you have a problem with the "Main Board".

    It could have been damaged by the battery during a crash possibly.

    The thing you don't want it to be is the Naza controller. because of the cost of replacement. You can easily check this
    by switching the M1 thru M4, ESC input leads on the Naza. So reverse 1-2, and 3-4, and see if the opposite motors
    have the problem. If the answer is "yes", pull the Naza controller out, and slam it firmly against a hard surface, as it may
    have a stuck accelerometer.

    Hope you have success with this problem.
