How do I fix my Drone that won't lift off?

I just got my Drone a couple days ago and I have been busy so I could not take it outside to see how it works but today I finally got the time to take it out for a test drive but I let my sister try flying it and she allowed it to slam onto the ground from a high altitude and now the propellers are spinning but its not taking off. How do I go about fixing it?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Ok unlike all of the other answers I have the correct way to fix this although it will not be easy. The reason your drone will not take off is the motor broke or went bad when it hit the tree. Some people have the problem where there drone will not take off and it leans left or right I had this problem. That has NOTHING to do with it, the way you can fix this is by ordering a new motor and watch this video https://youtu.be/tpEhf7I6R9s

Hope this helped !

Btw you can fix your drone from leaning left and right by tuning it with these three buttons 1.The button under left stick 2.The button under the right stick 3.the button to the right of the right stick if you have any problems email me at charlieramont67@gmail.com

I just got my drone yesterday. I turned off the trim but it still zooms at an angle backwards and it wont go off the ground.

by

All I have hit though is the wall with the rotor guards on and it still looks like it was just bought from the store. I don't think the engine broke.

Check all the props for damage and debris around the shafts(string and things like that). Other than that make sure you have a fully charged battery

I have fully charged the battery and it still isn't working. I am going to check the shafts for debris later today and I hope that fixes the problem.

What does it not turn into when it is off? That question makes no sense! Is it supposed to turn into a pumpkin or something?

I had the same problem after switching my propellers out, my drone (X5SW) didn't want to lift and kept tilting to the right. After some searching I found that if you don't have the propellers in the right sequence, that you're not going anywhere. I switched the props to the picture on the box and low and behold, I'm flying again!

gorav malhotra did you get it fixed?

I see new props have the A-D markings on them but can't find letters on Dronium 3 arms. Wont get off ground and revs up motor very strong. No support for this either on their site. What else to be expected.

by

I switched the props but it's still not flying and turning to the right side

by

lay one of your props on your table in front of you, just simply set it there by itself longways not sideways the front half of the prop should be angled down to the left the bottom half to the right.... this is an "A" blade.........the rest shuold be easy

If the motors are spinning up, it is likely an issue with the flight controller or ESC's. Have you tried calibrating the gyros? Turn the copter on and place on the level surface, I believe it is both sticks down and to the right (might be left, varies from manufacturer), hold and watch the LED's on the bottom flash, once the flashing stops it should be calibrated. I have seen that happen before after taking a crash. If the gyros don't agree with each other it won't fly.

Do the motors actually respond to the throttle up to point? Meaning you can spin them up and down a little bit just not enough to take off? Or is it just spinning in Idle when you turn it on?

Also, I'm not sure if it was a question or just a comment, but you should always have 2 motors spinning clockwise, and 2 counter clockwise.

On a lot of these toy grade drones if you get hung in a tree and the transmitter is still throttle up you are going to burn out something. I had issues when I was new to the hobby, so I feel your pain.

You need to reset your drone by moving the joysticks to the bottom right and when you open your remote push the botton that is under the right joysticks you only need to do this once

Motors cost nothing a few pounds for a set of 4 . If u crashed it u more than likely damaged the motors or control board. Check all the solder points are ok and no wires are detached. If thats ok and the motors rev up and respond to transmitter power then the board is naf. U can bypass the power control by placing a small blob of solder on the board in the right place. This bypasses the gyros and enables normal flight again. The gyros perm set at default so no need for calibration. Email me if u want to know where and ill send u photos stormx29@googlemail.com

If you don't ever have to recalibrate the gyros then why do most instruction manuals show you how. Is this just something to do that has no effect? Maybe they tell you that just for poops and giggles. Give me a break.

switching the props around worked for me. The quad now takes off and fly's correctly.
