Not Happy !!
I took the T580P+ outside to see how it would fly. Throttled up, trimmed it and it took to the sky, I was elated for all of about 15 - 20 seconds. Then the motor on the suspect arm seemed to slow and down it came crashing heavily and breaking an arm and motor (see pics)
Upon close inspection all three wires from the escape top the motor on the suspect arm are "stripped" in almost identical places and I am thinking this could have been the cause of less power to the motor on that arm.
I now have a crashed quad and no idea if and where I can get another arm to replace the smashed one. The other three motors power up still and work well.
