Hello, I am James! Welcome to Horizon Hobby, how can I assist you with finding the right item to suit your needs?
Hello James, I recently bought this Inductrix quadcopter, and now the back rotors seemed to be not producing enough power to lift off.
The battery is fully charged.
James H.
Have the blades come off at any point in the rear?
All of them have, but the front two rotors work great
James H.
Ok, lets make sure they are on the corerct direction then, this is usually the normal issue.
I checked that to, the left props are on the left side of the quad, and the right props are on the right.
when the front is faced away from you
James H.
They should be crossed, the front left and back right spin one direction and the front right and back left spin the other direction.
Ok so the props with the L on it should be in the upper left, and bottom right corner?
James H.
Can you see where the leading edge of each prop is, it would be the higest edge on the prop that would indicate the direction of spinning.
Ok James I've got it working now. The prop with the L on it were both on the left side. I put them so they are diagonally from each other and it works great now.
James H.
Awesome, I am glad it is working correctly for you now.
Thank you for your help
James H.
You are very welcome.
