    hi.

    i crashed my phantom after 1 prop flew off. dropped 12 storeys down onto grass patch. clean it up and replaced the screws tightening the props.
    callibrated in naza and all motor gave no errors.
    put back the props correctly n powered up.

    problem is... all 4 motors work perfectly but the phantom just refuses to lift abit.
    recallibrated the compass too. but still.cant lift even when i push it beyond flight throttle.

    any one can help me?

    I assume the props took quite some dmg, did you replace them?

    Did you put them back on the right motors? M1 is CCW, M2 CW etc.

    It took quite a beating after that 40m odd fall...

    but yups.. kinda solved it.. it is kinda idiotic of me.. Since i took everything out including the top, I put the top part back wrongly. It was rotated 90 degrees and fixed back.. hence the markings on the casing does not match the motors anymore. Realised it only when I saw my earlier pic of my phantom with my sticker on it. ...

    Thanks!
