Hi. 


So I have a little quad copter, and it was working pretty well, but all of a sudden it can't get off the ground. All 4 rotors seem to be spinning pretty quick but only one side is getting "lift". 


Maybe a little hard to diagnose without a video which I can find and post, but in case someone has seen this before?

Is it a real one or a toy?

I can't recall the brand of it, but they are very popular. Around $100 off ebay.

It sounds like you've got the wrong props on. There are 2x clockwise and 2x counterclockwise props and by having them mixed (eg, all clockwise) it won't get any lift.

 

 

You can check which one is which by looking at this:

The other possibility is that the battery just isn't giving enough juice anymore and the props just aren't quite spinning fast enough.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
