    I've wondered the same thing. If one motor goes kaput, the P2V will surely crash, and if you never find it, how is it possible to know what happened? Have any of you out there actually had one motor fail and have been able to prove it? If so, tell us how many flights you had beforehand, and what happened when one motor failed.

    I had one motor cut out due to a broken connection. The Phantom flipped upside down and crashed. The motors work in pairs. Lose one and the Phantom barrel rolls in a heartbeat.
