    I'm having a problem where one of my motors and props won't spin properly. It's the left rear arm of the bird.

    Upon executing a Car to start the Phantom, the other 3 props start properly while the problem one tries to spin but spins slowly and hesitantly in both directions. It never gets going.

    I did perform a basic IMU calibration last night. Nothing else.
    All software is at most recent versions.

    What's going on...

    Should I send it Back?

    That's what I was afraid of.
