    Hello,

    A little time ago I took of the propellers guards from my phantom an put the same screws, and the engines started work funny, I bought new engines and ESC but it still makes the same, one engine is working the other (only installed 1) have the same problem and the LED doe not turn on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhLC8WVD ... e=youtu.be.

    Anyone knows what´s happening.

    Best regards
    Pepito

    The screws used to secure the guards are too long to be used without the guards - they drive right up and into the motors, often destroying the windings.

    If you take guards off you MUST use the original screws that held the motors in place.

    Apologies if you have already done this, the wording of your post made it seem like you used the prop guard screws rather than the originals.

    Hello Pull-up

    The engines on the movie and the ESC are new ones, I really don´t understand the problem with it, if it was solely an engine problem it should now work well

    Which screws did you use to mount the new motors?
