AR Drone 2.0 one prop won't lift

Post by memphiskicker2 » 26 Dec 2017, 17:15

This parrot at drone 2.0 is brand new, never been flown. I started with a fully charged battery. My phone successfully connected to the drone. All lights on the drone turn green. I pressed the flat trim button. I have it set to in door flight and out door hull. (I do not have an out door hull)
When I press take off all 4 props spin up but 1 seems to be a bit weak as it lifts 3 corners but the 1 drags on the floor until it hits an object. Please help!!

I am convinced it's a bad motor. I did the rescue test while holding the drone in my hand. The one motor would not spin up at the same rate as the other 3.
As far as the propellers, i swapped the C props to see if one was misshaped. There was no change.
I'm going to buy a new motor and see if that fixes it.
