Had a strange crash. Flying GPS then tumble from the sky. Any thoughts?
That was bizarre! !
Good job documenting the malfunction! !
I'm guessing you had a esc failure. ..
Sorry to see you're having issues gene...
glad it didn't get all busted up..
Yeah ESC or motor failure.
I would be showing DJI and then asking for it to be fixed....
Sorry, it's early, what's ESC?
Electronic speed control
A quick google and I found out, Electronic Speed Control, I think lol.
Thanks, like most things, stuff goes wrong, and if you're in the air, they can go very wrong, I never want this to happen to me, but how do we try and make sure it doesn't?
Just have faith...
Sometimes components just fail...
nothing you can do about it...
Buy or build a Hexacoptor......you then have redundancy. That's the only way to give your rig a chance of staying airborne at the loss of a prop/motor/esc.
Thanks guys for the responses. Will update after calling DJI on Monday. Also have the flight logs so hope we can know what went wrong. I think the motor failure and ESC fault was a product of the crash landing and not the cause so will wait and see if the data will solve the mystery.
Could simply be a prop broke in flight too.
You can't. The only way to be sure that doesn't happen is not to fly
You can just mitigate them a tad on the few factors you can actually act on - like the props precisely for example, but 99% of what makes a multi fly is out of your control.
Even a hex/octo only offers redundancy in a very limited set of failure scenarios. A failing motor/ESC often takes out the others with it.
Sent the bird to DJI LA this morning...
Five to Six week back log...agh.
Taking long nap now.
Hang in there kauaigene!!
I'm pulling for you brother. ..
