Two of my Four motors won't spin properly!


I have a quad with naza and 4 tiger motors with 30a hobbywing funfly esc:s.

Have configured it all in the computer assistant but two of the 4 motors can't seem to decide which way to go! They just flick back and forth, CW and CCW. they wont spin up as their other fellas.

Its the two motors in the front. I've cut of the red wires from the escs into the naza to prevent their own BEC from working over the NAZA-bec.

I tried to rev them up almost fullspeed. Nothing works.

Do reversing channels in the naza assistant or transmitter make any difference? Right now all channels are reversed to be right in the naza assistant.

Should I fly in heli or Plane mode? Any special configurations in the radio I should make?

Please share your knowledge!

Try troubleshooting by plugging each suspect motor's ESC directly into Rx throttle channel, REMOVING the prop, UNPLUGGING all the rest, INCLUDING motor power, then ramping up throttle via Tx. Eliminate problems component by component.
good luck,
BTW, most setups use the 'plane' mode so that all the channel mixing occurs in the flight controller.
