Only if the battery is fully charged, leak a few volts and it'll be fine.......

Stuttering motor on idle.

Noticed yesterday that one of my motors is stuttering on idle when I arm.
Goes away as soon as I put any throttle in, and hovers perfectly.
I had an unexpected flip-out on Sunday, though I think that may have been a failsafe due to a chewed antenna.

Possible sign of an ESC beginning to go bad? Spedix ES20s.
Motor spins freely, no dirt in it, props on tightly.

Recalibrate your escs and make sure your idle up is high enough to spin all of them reliably. Props off while you're doing it!

That was my initial thought - but do you NEED to recalibtate for OneShot / Dshot? Thought it was all digital?

Yeah, but I'd still start there. I've had some weird stuff happen in the past where settings have changed.  Occasionally I have had crashes where I have had had to reflash firmware. I think jakalas has had the same too.

To be specific, you need to calibrate for oneshot/multishot, they are not digital. Dshot calibration doesn’t do anything.
Agree with firmware reflash, I have had crashes where doing that fixed issues
Other common causes -
mounting screws touching the windings.
Esc problem
Min_command too high
min-throttle/digital idle (one shot/dshot) too low
(Both of those should be fixed if you reflash)
Electrical short

Running DSHOT 600. Motor idle throttle, set to 4.5% (8k Gyro, 2k PID loop)
All motors stutter at 1008... which is fair enough,
Stable at 1014


Armed on the bench (yep, no props!) seems fine.
Taking it out to the garden for a try.

Hmmm... right as rain.  :hmm:

Only thing I did was to recalibrate the acc.
Must have just wanted some attention.  :shrug:

Ahhh... but there's only ONE way to be TOTALLY sure that it's working properly. #sendit
