First, remove the propellers, as they can cause serious injury. Then, connect the battery to your quadcopter and go to the “Motors” tab of the Betaflight Configurator. Enable the “Motor Test Mode” and use the sliders underneath the “Motors” on the left to spin each motor individually.
How do you test a Betaflight engine?
You can verify that this is indeed happening if you head to the “motors” tab, plug in your lipo to your miniquad(MAKE SURE PROPS ARE OFF!), and checking the little warning box. Then start raising the sliders for each motor one by one – if you move the slider for motor 1, the corresponding motor should spin!
How do I know if my RC motor is bad?
If you want to know whether or not your RC motor is bad, check continuity across the motor leads where any problem with the windings would show up. If it won’t run when the iots are hooked up, check the battery voltage and also check the voltage at the ESC motor leads, both of which should be really close.
Can a bad ESC burn up a motor?
An ESC can keep ruining motors once it has been connected this way. The worst thing a brushless ESC can do is send DC directly into a three phase motor and then it will burn out. If the esc inadvertently glitched and went brushed on a brushless motor this is a bad thing.
How can I test my drone camera?
