    All of a sudden my left front red light goes out. It's starts with it on and then during flight it goes out. I know the LED works as it illuminated on start-up. Any ideas?

    Is it consistent?
    i.e. Always works before take-off and goes out during flight at similar elapsed time since take-off???

    Meanwhile, wild guesses:

    Loose connector, loose part on PCB, intermittent connection on PCB- except you'd expect it to be intermittent and go out at random times.
    Thermal- ESC warms up, items expand, somewhere a connection is opened until it cools down.

    Yes it goes out pretty quickly. Tried to take the cover off and stripped 2 screws (good grief!!). I ordered a new motor and ESC. Just don't want it to crash!
