    So I was doing a promo shoot for our new vehicle in an orchard and doing a fast zoom out and up from a stationary position and one corner hit an apple tree branch as a gust of wind wasnt dealt with very well by the drone...knocked it off course but gradually the corner of the drone has begun to bounce....you can hear the motor working then failing then working then failing...

    Is this the calibration that has been knocked out or a new motor required? or something else I wont be aware of?

    Thank you for any help.

    Did the blade on corner that's shaking hit the tree?

    Already done, changed props straight away...the drone now heads to the ground very quickly as if i have the control on descend.

    You should ALWAYS recalibrate the IMU and compass after a crash.
