    Hi all,

    I have read that a few others seem to have had this error, but I have searched and searched and have been unable to find any answer to the issue.

    On one occasion, I had been flying my Q500 4k for just over 5 minutes when then error message "motor error, enter five- rotor mode! Please land immediately" pops up on the ST10+. I was over water at the time and freaked out, brought it in too quickly trying to land and clipped a small tree. Just one lost rotor blade, no biggie.

    The following week I took it out again and had a flawless 20 minute flight. I brought it back to me and swapped over to a fresh battery. I fly for about 2 minutes again and got quite high (about 60 metres) when the same warning came up. I was able to land it safely with no problems, but I've read stories of this error making it just drop from the sky.

    Now I'm worried about flying again because I live by the coast and a lot of the time it's flying over water :(

    Has anyone heard of a fix to this issue?

    Thanks for any help and apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.

    Dang, I'd let Yuneec know about that ASAP. Looks like maybe some stray code from H flyware?
