    Hi,

    The following issue is bothering me:

    All 4 motors at idle mode except one are turnig at about 1580 -1600 rpm . The exception is one motor: It turns at 1260 rpm.
    I have replaced it but with the exact same results.
    That makes me to believe that maybe is an esc issue.
    This is happpening from day one I bought the Phantom 2 .
    Until now I have more than 120-150 flights with no flight issues at all.
    But I cant stop bothering if something is wrong and in the long run a flight disaster due to a faulty esc happens.
    Any opinions or advise ?

    150 flights? Sounds like you are over analyzing.

    I have one motor which spins slower at idle. Logged dozens of flights so for now it is not a concern.

    Maybe you are right about the overanalyzing part!
