Had a new experience with my Meteor75 today.
I was planning on experimenting with some different configurations, namely adding Bluejay firmware, and something has gone wrong.
I openend the browser esc configurator and everything was recognized with the original firmware (it was O-H-5-BLHeli_S, 16.80). The FC is the BETAFPVF4SX1280.
I then proceeded to apply the Bluejay firmaware. I selected Bluejay from the dropdown, then kept the O-H-5 ESC, and selected the latest version available. Loaded the firmware and everything went as expected, no errors or nothing. I even applied a different melody to the startup, and it tested ok.
Unplugged everything and went on to test arming and checking if everything was working as it should. Thats when things started to go wrong.
The quad armed but the motors struggled a bit to start spinning, eventually alll started to spin, but motor 1 was not. Went back to the configurator, and tested all motors were spinning on the first screen. Proceeded to read settings so that I could change the min start up power of the motors. Bumped up the setting just a bit from the stock value but still lower than the max, and actually much lower than the original values from betafpv.
Tried again, but things still seemed weird. I managed to arm and get all motors to spin, but it didn’t lift.
I went back to the configurator, but at this point it no longer read/recognized the escs and couldn’t get to the settings. Panic mode on…
I searched a bit and tried to see what a possible workaround could be and read somewhere that flashing fc firmware again could be the way to go. So I flashed the FC, 4.3 release ( I was already running one of the latest development versions before).
Problem still seem to persist. On the esc configurator it still doesn’t recognize escs and motor one doesn’t spin on the first screen.
On betaflight, motor 1 doesn’t spin either. When I plug in the battery, I only hear one beep instead of the usual beeps. Is it likely that I fried the motor somehow as well? I unplugged it from the fc and removed from the frame, did a visual inspection, couldn’t see anything different, apart from a bit of hair stuck around it (which I removed). Anyway to check that the motor is really gone?
I’m at a loss and kicking myself for possibly ruinning a perfectly functioning quad…
Is there any hope? I need some help please.
