"Intel RTF drone motors does not arm" after crash

Jump to solution

Hi,

After running my Intel Ready to Fly Drone flew into a brick wall building and landed on concrete floor. I'd say the drone had incurred considerable damage. The obvious outcome were that 3 propellers broke, and the GPS antenna broke.

After this crash, the transmitter appears to bind to drone just fine (the LED on the Spektrum receiver is steady orange) but the motors do not want to arm.

I have followed the "Getting Started Guide" repeatedly and have insured that the transmitter was on manual mode.

I followed the "Why don't the motors arm?" at https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000023469/drones/development-drones.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000023469/drones/development-drones.html, calibrating the sensors via QGroundControl. QGroundControl was also responsive on "radio setup" when I control the DXe transmitter .

What are the possible reasons on why the motors do not want to arm? What are the recommended troubleshooting procedures I should perform?

Sincerely,

Ben Nguyen

I am sorry, but I can't help it; I have to say it: What part of you flew it into a wall and crashed it onto a cement floor didn't you understand?

All sort of other, non-visible damage could have been done; all you did was identify the external, easily visible stuff. Have you manually tested the motors? Have you verified the cabling connecting the motors?
