    Is there anything that can be said for the "feel" of the motors when turning them manually by hand? For example - three of the motors have a definite resistance when turning them - almost like there is a magnet in them and then it smoothly moves by the slight resistance. However one of motors turns very smoothly with literally no resistance at all and feels very different from the other three. Is this something to worry about? Recently I received a max motor speed reached error. Nothing drastic happened other then the warning and my flight continued uninterrupted with no anomaly.

    Yep I figured there were. My concerns are that one of my motors doesn't exhibit this same attribute and I recently got a max motor speed reached error. I was just curious if anybody else noticed a different feel among their motors resistance to manually turning them by hand and if this was normal? Thanks!

    In my personal opinion I would say they should all "feel" the same resistance while turning. I have one my quadcopter that turns a little bit easier and I can see that its resistance is lower because when I shut down the motors propellers spinning from inertia spin this one a little faster then stops. (no power applied to them).
