    My Rodeo 150 has a problem where the #3 motor (rear left) spins up but doesn't accelerate with the other motors. This has the effect of pulling the quad diagonally in that direction (225 degrees) after I recalibrated the sticks and set the trims using CleanFlight. I could accelerate each of the motors up to full throttle in Motor Testing but that #3 just won't go past idle speed.

    My question is whether this is indicative of a bad ESC, motor or something else.

    Yes I'm a noob but am very techie so would prefer a detailed explanantion for my learning experience.

    Thank you!

    Using Cleanflight is bad. If you made any setting changes by accident it would account for your problem.

    Reload the settings from our resources section using cleanflight version 1.2.0
