So “landed” my hex on the beach (video below), broke one of the landing legs, gimbo servo, and FPV transmitter aerial.
Two of the arms dug into the sand, and the props probably came to a sudden stop (both were dug into the sand). I’ve used compressed air to blow out the motors, and both seem to spin fine (although one made a weird alarm like noise when I plugged it back into the ESC. After I removed the battery and reconnected it is was fine).
One spins smoother than the other, one is a bit ‘jumpy’ if I slowly turn it manually, rather than a smooth spin.
So just wondering if anyone has any tips on when to not trust a motor, even if it still appears to work.
