    Hello,

    I bought a used EYE Navigator 250 and did all the initial settings, bindings and calibrations – everything without a problem. When starting the machine I realize the left rear motor turning  right – it should turn left. The drone cannot start or is flipping over. I tested with a changed left rear arm – but no result.

    Can everybody tell me what to do?

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Hi Dirk.

    It should be an easy fix. What you need to do is, from that motor switch one of the three motor cables at the ESC. The wires are connected by bullet cables to the ESC (speed controller). You can just switch any of the three wires. This should reverse the turning direction.

    Let me know in case you need an additional explanation.

    Best regards,
    Chris aka MatLi

    Hi Chris,

    this was a really good advice. I succeded to change the turning direction of the motor. Meanwhile I’ve got the next problem: I did binding, calibration and all the things I have to do before starting. But: on the display of the remote control I see a ERR 1: 0% or 1% in the last line. The drone can not be startet. I did not find an explanation of this error in the documents…pleas advice…

    Best regards,
    Dirk.

    Hey Dirk,

    Glad to hear you have the motor spinning back in the right direction.

    In regards to the Err:  0 to 1% this is actually fine and not an issue. This is the standard layout in the latest firmware of the radio.  It’s stating that there isn’t any errors to worry about or be concerned of. If there was then you would see a higher number here meaning there is an issue. So it’s actually perfectly fine.

    I also see that the Navigator is bound to the radio, so no issue there as well. Are you ensuring all switches are in the up position and moving the throttle stick down and to the left bottom corner to hold and initiate motors?

    Looking forward to your reply so we can assist to get you up back up and flying.

    Best regards,

    Jamie

    Hi…Did you take note of motor rotation while installing the motors, to me it sounds lime you just soldered them in and hoped to get lucky 4 out of 4 times. The odds of that install method working are very bad and you really need to take more care when doing such things.To fix this you will need to take it apart again, take the props off and check the rotation of each motor compared to the rotation marks on the shell. Any motors spinning the wrong way you need to change any 2 of the 3 wires and this will change their rotation. Do a test without props then to make sure all are spinning the correct way, re fit the shell making sure it is properly orientated and insert the props.
