Two motors should be wired Yellow,Black and Red while the other two should be wired Black Yellow and Red. By alternating Yellow and Black wire gives you direction.

Just to close out this earlier discussion, I managed to disassemble myself using the above video. If anyone decides to go for a motor replacement it is fairly straightforward but a bit time-consuming. Also, the screws are hex nuts which stumped me for a while but I found some very small allen keys and these did the trick.


Anyway, it was unsurprisingly a wiring issue which is now fixed. I hope to get the frame reassembled tonight and finally get this back up in the air. I just wanted to thank @spiller9020 for his assistance with the links and pictures to help me get this sorted.

Well done, glad you found the root cause of the problem. Would test fly it without the gimbal attached just incase it malfunctions, after all the gimbal will cost you abt 200 quid if damaged. Best of luck

Hiya guys

Just wondering if 550euro sounds like a decent price for a Phantom 3 standard.

I am just beginning to research drones and this is the lowest price I have seen

Nope, the p3 standard is an old quad. The P3SE is a better version with 4k. Haven't looked recently but it was 450e last year. 550e for a standard is a rip off.

Any word on delivery?

It hasn’t changed from being in Germany since Tuesday morning. I should hopefully have it next week I guess.

Separate Camera Monitor

I find the screen quite hard to see, especially if sunny. I was thinking of getting an external screen. As the Xiaomi 4K is on 5.8 Ghz as far as I know it should OK to get a standard FPV monitor that covers this range. Might be fun to see what else I can pick up also! I'm not brave enough to go full goggles yet as I would also like to keep Line-Of-Sight so considering a 7" monitor with "shades" on the side (although I don't know how I will hold everything!



Anyway, presumably it doesn't transmit 4K video so a standard unit will work. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these types of things. Here are a few potential candidates...

That's a great deal man, have just spent all my Christmas money, the two batteries alone are worth at least 100euro. I'm sure it'll sell soon

Finally released, a great option if you're on the go. Not as good as the mi drone but looks to be a decent performer..

I had to cancel my order, they couldn't deliver. They said maybe ship in two weeks. But they could send me the plug convertor tomorrow
