Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Will one wonky esc cause all 4 motors to surge ?

The tale of frustration and bewilderment continues.
Having re-soldered _every_ connection, changed the FC (3 times)
at just about 50% throttle, all 4 motors surge randomly (but quite quickly)

Tonight, noticed that if I go 30% throttle and tilt the quad back, both rear motors will go to high and hold steady.
if I tilt forward all motors surge
if I tilt (left or right, I forget, but will check later) one side will allow 2 motors to spool up hard, ';tother side leads to surging again.

(indicating one of the forward esc/motors is causing the surging)

Can the FC "see" an ESC misbehaving ?


Yes Airwave, one wonky ESC will cause all 4 motors to surge,
Oh, Thank you Airwave, I shall change it at once . . . .

I did, the beast flies !
Stable as a rock, despite running 2 motors backwards (as I';d run out of CCW motors and used CW ones)

Happy dayze !
