    I've purchase several Rodeo 110s and continue to have my motors fail. This seems to occur after a few minor crashes and one time without any crash. I've looked to make sure the wire leads are attached, so I know that it's not the issue. The motors just flutter and want spin up. I have 4 motors with this issue. By the time I buy 4 new motors and ESCs, it would be $120.00 + shipping. At this point, I'm better off buying a new drone.

    A inner crash will dislodge and / or damage the Ribbon cable for the FC.

    You need to check after every hard landing. This is where the Control for the individual motors originate.

    Hello bjr981s,

    Be advised, when I add a new motor and ESC to the drone, replacing the defective one; it spins correctly. So, I'm not sure this is the case. I will check.

    Thanks!

    The issues with the connections cause random motor problems.
