    Could my summit prop gaurds be causing the problem. I read the screws could Pierce motor wires. I guess I'll take them off and see what happens, any suggestions? Thanks

    If you upload your flight log here and post a link back, we can take a look to see if there is any indication as to what happened.

    This could happen if you used screws made for the Phantom 2 (they are longer) or did not re-insert the original motor screws when taking off your prop guards.

    Just click the "Browse" button at my link above and select your file just like you do when you email it. That will allow you to upload and view your log.

    I can see my flight log on my computer, but I don't know how to see that from my tablet, I hit browse while I'm hooked up to my pc, it shows android device, photo suite, documents. I search and don't see the file you want. I'm sorry I don't understand, my wife is good and don't know. I'll try to get my computer tech friend to help tomorrow. Sorry if I wasted your time
