    Right rear motor seems weak. Arms and throttles up and down but I can not take off with it. There is a video on YouTube that the same motor has an issue but his just jerks. Was gonna just buy a motor but then I seen there was some ESC problems. This rig is only about a year and a half old and maybe been flown 4 times in that time. And never crashed until this problem. Then just flipped over. The other 3 motors seem to lift fine. And help would be super! I don't care to even buy both parts. But don't want to spend over $100 and still have the issue! Thanks!

    Swap this motor to the opposite corner.

    See if the issue moves or stays. This will define if its a motor or ESC problem.

    When you have the scout apart. check the ESC wiring. Its also a good time to change the GPS to a dual.

    See my thread here.

    Boy you're gonna love this one! The prop was cracked where it mounts to the metal center. It was letting it slip under load.

    LOL! Yeap. I'll try to post a pic later. The only reason I caught it was when I tried to unscrew the prop.
