    Hi Guys,

    I am a new owner of my Q500 4k. I took it out for her maiden voyage with no problems. Then I updated the firmware and took my Typhoon outside when i started it up it cartwheeled and broke 3 propellers. On closer inspection it appears that motor 4 is spinning clockwise when the motor indicates it should be counter clockwise. I have tried assigning the ESC ID assignment and when i get to Rotor 4 it tells me to restart my Drone. When I reboot it the rotor appears to be spinning the wrong way. I don't know what to do, I don't want to take it outside and break another set of props or even the camera. Any help would be appreciated because i have no idea.

    Thanks

    Do a reinstall of the firmware. After that hook it back up to the GUI and reassign everything again. Hopefully that will fix it.
