Hey there. I'm new to quads and picked up a v929 off Amazon as my first.

It recently developed the same "one slowly spinning prop" issue I'd read about here. Same diagnostic; spins whether TX is on or off, other props act that way in that port and the problem one is good in other ports.

So I figure it was the board. Just ordered a spare board off of eBay for $12 shipped and hope to be back in business soon.

Was going to just get a new BNF one off banggood (and use this one as a parts donor) but I don't see any 929 there at all and only the RTF 949. Hmmmm.

I'll give it a try, although I'll have to get the gear and greatly improve my soldering skills.

According to this helpful thread I seem to have a failed-leaky MOSFET.

I've started looking at some YT videos; thanks for the encouragement.
