    had a very scary experience.... it happened 3-4 times where motor cuts off mid flight.. p2 starts free falling then turns on and stabilizes itself... it did a complete 360 falling before it stabilized itself 2 sec. later

    i replaced the motor as i was told it was bad by the repair facility... 1st flight after the fix it does it 2 times in 3 mins again..... luckily i was flying low to test it out and it had a minor fall where the prop broke

    anyone had a similar issue ???

    Sound like a cold solder connection or possibly dirty battery terminals. Which ever I think I'd open the shell and check those power leads on the main board for a cold connection

    If that's the case you should open the shell and check for cold solder connections on the ESC module.
