Why is my (A) propeller not working?
I was flying my drone and I hit a tree. The drone was stuck in the tree and when we got it out only 3 propellers worked. I think that one gear is stuck.
it could very well be a gear, does the shaft spin , does the prop spin at all....if nothing spins at al either a broken wire from the motor or the gear has something lodged in it, you can visually check both
These small drones use coreless motors in which the brushes are simply brass fingers. With the high current and inevitable sparking between the brushes and the commutator they gradually get burnt away. Probably a prop was jammed when it got stuck in the tree and that was the last straw for it.
With care, it’s not difficult to disassemble, and you can get a set of spare motors from AliExpress quite cheaply. It’s a fairly delicate soldering job to install them but not hard with care.
