    Pretty good dealer, might be worth a plug.

    But I can't see how 'motor failure' has been diagnosed as the fault- from the video that is.

    they said that one motor and the speed controller were at fault.

    They were very honest with you- they could have come up with numerous pilot error scenarios.

    like what?

    it shows the bird just hovering, and when i turn to right it goes into a dead spin.
