CoDrone not taking off--possible motor problem
nks last edited by
Just got a classroom set of codrone pro. I have one that does not take-off, it spins off to the side and it seems that the motor does not respond on one arm the same as the other 3. Props spin, but no take-off. I saw a similar post with a video of same behavior.
It sounds like one of your motors is dislodged or something is stuck in the motor. This can happen after a crash. Carefully check all of the motors by removing the propellers and checking for hair. Remove the motors as well and check that the motor wires are touching the contacts. Here is a video tutorial.
If your CoDrone is still not flying then swap the motor with another one on your CoDrone. Sometimes one arm will hold a better fit for a particular motor. Make sure to switch the propellers as well to maintain the proper orientation. Finally, calibrate the drone one more time in a well-lit room over a non-reflective surface.
Let me know if you continue to have any issues!
