    Own: P2V Received in December. Have flown about 2 hours.

    1) I can't seem to get much above/beyond 200' (200 feet) without having a "controller lost" error shown on my phone. I have yet built up the courage to continue pushing through that. I simply come back closer or drop in altitude. I am not directly under the unit. FCC mode engaged. Any ideas?

    2) When I manually spin the motors with consisitent force.... 2 motors spin about the same. One spins about 30% less and one about 30% more.

    The one that spins 30% more is actually feeling pretty loose. I can pull slightly on propeller and moves up slightly.
    Any idea or comment?

    Thank you very much in advance for any insights. Mike

    Sounds like on the motor you lost a retainer or brass bushing. I hate to say it but your going to have to split that case to tell. You should not have that kind of play in the motor.
    can you hear anything rolling around or lose inside. Have no answer for loss of signal.
