    Why did you change the motors and were DJI motors you replaced? Here's a photo in how the motors should be soldered ion to the ESC modules.

    The CCW motors have the black dot if they are hard to see click on the photo to enlarge.

    The E300 were fitted because I have made this model from spare parts from my spares box. The motors were from when I swopped them from my DJI 550 to use the later ones. All the bits are collected except for the Naza and GPS. I think I may have solved the problem, I always use a Maplins power supply set to under 1amp on the 550,but the firmware cannot detect a DJI Battery and cuts the system out. Will find out later when I have used the proper battery.

    It would cost you 61.98 for 4 oringinal motors (parts 5 and 6) from www.bhphotovideo.com If the ESC module are damaged for v2.1 $19.00 each.
