    My Phantom crashed instantly.

    What happens?
    * Right after I take off, it hovers for a second or two and clashes.
    * when it crashed it seemed to me that one specific side motor fail to work.

    What did I do before it happened?
    * I tightened the screws holding the motors.
    * I open the phantom body to unplug tarot cable to Naza.

    I did a test in the room without propeller and all motor runs like should. I at least don't see the difference.
    Do you think I have a dead motor?
    How do I know if it is dead?

    Cheers

    There was a problem with the firmware whereas when you do a CSC 2 motors would spin faster than the other 2. This was fixed in firmware last month so make sure you have the latest firmware.
