    After a recent crash had some gimbal issues and one motor would not spin up after gimbal repair. Replaced the motor by factory specs factory specs but still getting the motor obstructed message. Somebody please tell me there's an easy fix besides the motherboard! The bad motor does twitch periodically. Please help

    If the motor is known good then it is the ESC or something else 'upstream'. Even if you hooked it up wrong it would still spin but just in the wrong direction.

    Error is coming out of ESC, you will have to check main board for any possible short.
