    I have a new P2 and when i Initiate the shutdown procedure (left stick down), the phantom always spins up the left rear (battery side) motor for a couple seconds before turns off all motors. The motor goes to approximately 25% power for a second, but not enough to move the entire phantom. Only this motor spools up. If I start the motors again, they all spin normal. Additionally, when flying "hard,"this same motor is always a tad hotter then the rest, but doesn't burn when touched. Any ideas?

    Precisely what "shutdown procedure" are you using? CSC? Are you pulling the left stick down fully before doing anything else?

    The "tad hotter" thing is interesting. Do you like to turn right?

    An IMU Calibration seemed to solve the spool issue. I use left stick down. The rear left motor is still hot however. I do a lot of full forward and full up maneuvers, but turn equally. I have an aftermarket goodluckbuy gimbal. Maybe a weight balance issue?
