Had an unusual incident this morning. Finished the mission, walked over to the P4Pv2, turned off the battery and retrieved the unit. As I was walking back to the vehicle one of the motors started to rotate. It only last for a couple of seconds, should I be concerned. That sounds like a Dear Dorothy Dix, but, has anyone else had this happen to them?

It must have still wanted to fly ,,cant say I heard of that one but being a phantom it dont surprise me anymore ,each one has a mind of it's own :),pull the battery next time to prevent it ,your probably have to upload some data so some can read it to see why it start or not fully shut down

😳? Wonder if the logs would show those 2 seconds. If it still had power? Strange, new one on me too.
