    Just finished a new build using the Rc Ex kit parts and my lh motor wont run like it is not getting all three phases as it stutters.

    I have tested both motors in the beta flight tab motor tab and it wont do anything else other than stutter like on two phases.

    I have checked all the solder joimts for continuity on the three wires going from the esc.

    Any ideas as to it something simple?

    Hi,
    do You have the option of simply switching the ESCs? If the problem persists afterwards – then on the rh motor of course – it’s a defective ESC … otherwise the lh motor is broken.

    I diagnosed the problem and embarrassingly … Well it’s 100% user error.

    I replaced the motor with a spare quad motor and it all worked so it’s a broken motor.

    I am used to big RC helicopters and big parts after 30 years and without thinking I used a motor mounting bolt that was too long and it hit the motor windings and shorted the motor windings…

    Well that’s a top tip for new players in these tiny motors is to make sure you use the right length engine mounting bolt !
