Drone motors fail before lift or slow down

680 viewstroubleshootingkk quadcopter


I recently build a quad with the following specs

1. KK mini

2. 4 x 1000kV motors

3. 4 x 30A ESC

4. 2200mAh battery

5. Arduino based wifi receiver


While trying to get the drone to even lift up from the ground i am facing the following issues

1. Motors stop working as throttle is increased. (you can guess the speed from motor sound)



2. If all the motors do manage to spin, then beyond 50% throttle their speed starts to drop to min throttle automatically.


It would be really helpful if you could suggest a fix.





Hi, that’s strange, I would recommend calibrating your ESCs to start.  It would help to know exactly what kind of escs and motors you are using.
