How to Fix a Drone Propeller that Won’t Spin (Step-by-Step Guide)
- Check for Visible Obstructions or Debris.
- Check the Batteries.
- Check Remote or Transmitter Connectivity.
- Check the Gyros Initialization.
- Check the Propellers and Propeller Shafts.
- Check for External and Internal Damaged Wires.
- Check the Motors’ Functions.
Why won’t my motors spin in Betaflight?
Answer: Hold both of the joysticks in the down position and then flip the arm toggle (SwA in my set up) to the down all at the same time.
How do you spin a motor in Betaflight?
Using the Motor Tab in Betaflight Enable the checkbox “I understand…”, and increase the slider just a tiny bit (e.g. 1100) to spin up the motor. Don’t drag the slider all the way up, spinning the motor at full speed without propeller for too long can damage the motor.
How do you reverse individual motors in Betaflight?
The first step to do is to go into Betaflight and select “Motor direction is reversed” in the Configuration tab. This will tell the flight controller that the clockwise (CW) spinning propellers will now spin counter-clockwise (CCW) and the CCW spinning ones, CW.
How do I know if my drone motor is bad?
The best way to know if your quadcopter motor is bad is to use a multimeter and measure each phase for resistance. They should all be the same if the motor is fine. You can also spin the propellor by hand to see if it turns properly or not.
Should a brushless motor spin freely?
A brushless motor should spin freely when all the wires are separated as there is not a complete circuit. If the motor resists your rotation regardless of the wire connections, it’s likely that your motor has an internal short circuit.
Why do my motors keep accelerating on the bench when I arm without props?
What you’re seeing as the motors slowly spin-up is the buildup of that Ki value getting stronger and stronger as flight controller is trying harder and harder to execute a change that it can sense, but can’t impact. No props means no force to execute change, hence the windup.
Which way do drone motors spin?
They call these “Self locking”, because on a quadcopter, 2 motors are spinning clockwise and the other 2 are spinning counter clockwise. By using propeller threads that are the opposite to motor spin direction, the props automatically lock themselves down and won’t come loose when flying.
