Good to hear. Going to give Solo #2 a try, if this one bites the dust I am going to move onto a different platform. Very much appreciate the help from both of you. Cheers.
About 2 months ago, @Leonardthall added some functionality to the AP_Motors library that can detect thrust loss. And for multirotors that are more than 4 motors, it will boost power to the other motors to help maintain altitude and yaw control to the extent possible. There’s just nothing you can do with a quad or tri since they will flip the split second a motor dies.
