Bebop 2 Motor issue, maybe time to upgrade? Is that possible?

Post by Frelanz » 06 Oct 2020, 08:59

:arrow: So I knicked a branch today :shock: playing around in the park and my bebop 2 went into a "motor stall" and plummeted all of 6 feet on to fluffy green grass... after I righted it and picked off the grass I hit launch, the props spun like it was going to take off and the it said motor stall... it did that like 2 more times and then I noticed the right rear motor was kind of lagging the rest... I picked it up to hand launch as I though maybe it was the grass getting in the way... now I have a "motor stage broken" error :roll: .... I checked it out a bit and it seems ok, spun freely, cage doesn't wobble (like another one I have) I disconnected from it closed my app took out the battery, even disconnected and reconnected the motor wire under the foot and all that noise to no avail.... ANYWAYS.... so I guess it's more of a "HARD" issue? Physical wiring or something? Anyone had that problem? AND .... has ANYONE EVER PUT BEBOP 2 POWER MOTORS IN A BEBOP 2 STANDARD BEFORE? Does it work? What's the difference if any? Have some wifi questions too but that's for another post after I look around some... THANKS IN ADVANCE GUYS!

Hi there..

First,go into your settings and power up the bebop...you can find the page that shows a diagram of the Bop with it's motors. All motors should show being "green" which means they are all operational. A red one will tell you that the motor is faulty.
As far as using power edition motors on a standard bebop the answer is NO. PE motors take more power,spin faster and the standard bebop mother board is NOT compatible. You would also need to replace the board with a power edition board. The camera and GPS unit are the same.
I fly PE's only (and a DJI Mavic Mini) and recently converted a standard to PE with a new MB and PE motors.
