Little known fact, if you push a runner bean seed up your nose the moisture will cause it to germinate, and expand.You wont get any beans though just  two black eyes. :o

IFLY4 repair and motor set up advice

Good morning all, I am repairing an IFLY4 (original) for a friend who had to replace the front two esc';s (M1 + M4) as they had alledgly failed, when he fitted the replacement ESC he found that his quad just flipped on take off. On doing a motor test (on computer) I found the following, Motor 1 = Both M1 + M3 rotate, Motor 2 = Nothing, Motor 3 = Nothing, Motor 4 = Both M4 + M2 rotate. I wondering if the correct ESC';s were purchased, or perhaps there is another problem. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Mark.


If telling motor 1 to spin causes both motors 1 and 3 to spin then i would assume the problem is not the ESCs or the motors. The only common component there is the flight controller and software / firmware.

So try reinstalling / reflashing the flight controller with defaults and see if that fixes things. Otherwise try replacing the flight controller

Does the I-Fly use those slightly odd I2C control based ESCs?

If my memory is correct then it does which means you have to replace their flight controller with another the same (i don';t rate I-Fly';s highly) or else replace the flight controller and all 4 ESCs with something better.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.
