The drone feels like it's pushing downwards and won't take off

It was working fine and flying properly until I changed a propeller and it feels like it's pushing down and won't take off? (Some button may have been pressed on the controller after it stopped working)

Is this a good question?

When you replaced the propeller, you likely replaced it with the wrong one. With a drone, the lower left and upper right propellers spin in opposite directions of the upper left and lower right. There should be a number or letter on your old propeller, so you should have replaced it with the same one.

I agree with @oldturkey03, good answer.


I did actually put the other propeller back and it stills doing the same thing, it feels like it's literally flying the opposite way.


Can you see what direction the propellers are spinning in?

I would like to about the upper right and lower left. Are they spinning in the detection that will make lift?


Upper right and lower left and spinning in the same and upper left and lower right are spinning the in the same direction also. It seems to be pushing down. If I let it go it's it drops far faster than normal. ( I'm not dropping it from a height, it's getting getting damaged from that.


Yes, but are the propellers spinning in the correct direction?
