Apologies if this has been asked previously, but do members generally have their controller Emergency Propeller Stop setting on or off?
I hadn’t realised there was an option until a few weeks back, being new to the hobby (September).
When I saw that there was, it occurred to me that the damage to my DJI Mini 2 when it went into the leaves of a tree from a gust of a wind - I now use the UAV Forecast app before each flight! - may not have occurred if the setting had been at “off“
as I’m pretty sure that it was the fall to the ground that caused a broken motor arm.
I can see the default to ‘on’ is a safety feature but it’s a shame in my case the motors didn’t restart during the fall…
Cheers and a Happy New Year - and good flying!
