    You need to be a bit more specific, but I am going to guess that you are starting the motors without props....correct? It is normal for the motors to shut down shortly after without the props, if that is what you are asking.

    They will stay on for a bit at idle, but if you attempt to rev them they will shut down....at least that has been my experience although I grant you that is a rarity.

    Welcome!

    If Fly Dawg's guess at what you are explaining is accurate it sounds as if he has the answer. This has always been the way a P3 has worked.

    Funny though, we had many people ask about this when the P3 was first released but not that many in the last year or two. Now all of a sudden we've had two or three people ask the same thing in the last week. Funny how that happens, huh?

    Good luck!
