    Hey guys,

    I've switched my ESC and motor for the rear right side of my Phantom 2. I noticed something strange tonight when checking out the boop LED sequences. When I power it on, all 4 ESC LEDs flash yellow for just a quick second, and then red for about 1 full second, and then back into the yellow red whatever sequence before you would then calibrate. However, after this initial quick yellow flash, and during the full 1 second red flash, the ESC I have replaced does not light up. Only for this red flash moment tho. It's other instances during the light sequences all work properly, and the motor and ESC work properly. I have not flown yet tho, but it seems it's working fine.

    Does this lack of red light in only the initial sequence mean anything? I believe it's bc it's no the original component but wanted to see what the community thought. Thanksss
