Dromida Vista – Possible Motor Issues – Fixed

Let me start by saying I like the Dromida product line and especially the Vista, are normally a very easy to fly and tough little drone at a good price. Just wanted to say that I opened up a new one that I received a few weeks ago and it spun around in circles and would not take off. As entertaining [...]

That pretty much nails the current situation of the whole multirotor hobby right on the [...]
