I've just tested taking out a working motor without one of the bullet connectors attached, and I had the same issue. I'm positive now that somewhere between my ESCs and my Motors, there are quite a few bad connections. I plan on just getting rid of all these bullet connectors and splicing the wires directly to the ESCs
Consider Protek bullet connectors from A Main Hobbies. Different construction, much better, easier to solder, no risk of messing up ESC's and you can change motors if you ever need to to test things.

NEXT PROBLEM

My motors now all work...now the DJI NAZA won't start all of the motors. No movement. My rudder control is also out of whack. I will post a quick video right now.

At it again! (0 min 47 sec)


for some odd reason, I can't get the Turnigy 9x out of mode 1.. Could this be the problem?

a video of your assistant software setup would help more. specifically the tx input screen so we can verify your stick movements are correctly programmed

I forget what the default setting is but I have mine at 120% and if you haven't done it already you need the unhook the red wire from the Esc to the Naza

Thanks, just what I had hoped to hear. Added a GoPro to my F450 quad and bought some Gemfan Woodies. Weather so bad here can only hover in the house but they seem real stable, are a little quieter, and very classy looking. I noticed a little more amp draw also, but that goes hand in hand with the additional lift.

You are almost there take a deep breath, check everything twice, and I' m ready to watch the video. Be sure to stay away from those props, it's no fun getting cut by them. Way to not quit, you will do very well with this hobby.

Back to the drawing board!


Well...I crashed... it flipped over hehe..

Carbon fiber tube arms aren't that great.

May have to grab some aluminum

Stupidly didn't film a video

No broken props.. I think the motors were so strong they just tore right through the arms. Which were carbon fiber.
It happened fast... but my dad said it was hovering then it just tumbled.

EDIT:

After further inspection, I'm positive that when I gave the motors more thrust...they ripped through the carbon fiber arms! Oh well.. Looks like I'm going to have to buy some aluminum arms

Here are some pics for your enjoyment
