Bebop 2 won’t lift off!

Post by Smithy783 » 23 Feb 2019, 13:23

Hi all, I am an inexperienced drone user but recently bought a bebop 2. On my most recent flight the drone lost connection to the controller and caught a tree on its return to home and fell to the floor.

The central cross cracked which I have now replaced and I have also replaced the propellers but for some reason the drone won’t lift off...... the front propellers lift off the ground but the back won’t lift at all.

Has anyone come across this before and anyone have recommendations to fix the issue please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi smiffy

Make sure you have the props on the right way round?
And also you say you have replaced the central cross check you have the motor the right way round ie the wires to the correct motor good luck

I followed a YouTube video and am sure I put them back correctly, I will take them off and check the motors are in the correct place. Is there any indication on the motors as to what position they should be?

This is what someone sent to me to help when I had the same issue

Take a look at section 9, paragraph 2 of the link below.

The rear motor cables cross each other, the left rear motor cable goes to the rear right motor, right rear motor cable goes to left rear motor.

This may be the problem, good luck

Hi both, all fixed thanks.

It was the wire issue, I hadn’t crossed them. Thank you both.
