    Hi all

    My friend has p3a and had this issue today. He was flying and suddenly got this error messages.
    he right away rth'd and landed. Checked everything was fine. Error message dissappeared and he flew again without any issues.
    He has p3a with old motors.

    What was this? Anything to consider or to do?

    He should check for debris. Turn bird upside down. Anything can land in there. I got that when I was stuck in a tree and the motor could not spin because of twiggs. :)

    This is signaling that one motor got totally unloaded whereas another motor got overloaded.

    Your friend should be able to throw more lights on the case.

    Anyway, he should blow air to motors to clean them up. Need more clues.
