    Have had this great product for 2 months now. Had only 1 crash, which was its first flight (2 months ago) with no extreme damage other than a few scratches on the body and not a single crash since then.
    The lower left motor sounds really agressive when pushing the left stick right, but when i push the left stick left, it sounds smoothly.
    I would also like to add that I have no experience with QC's until I bought this.

    Watch the video below and tell me what you think.
    I'm quite worried and being a responsible pilot, I wouldn't risk flying with an abnormal motor (If ever).

    Any replies/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to replace that motor... repeated use may cause it to fail in flight.

    Sounds like a bearing about to fail. Check with DJI about warranty.

    Do you have an idea on what may have caused this? So I can try and prevent it next time. Or is it just a faulty motor that dji gave me.. thanks
