I tore down my mcpx to put on a new frame. I had broken off a body mount but it was still flying before the disassembly. Now after the reassembly it does this strange pulsing illustrated in this quick video. (main gear has been removed) I have checked all connections and even did a fresh bind to no avail. Any ideas?

Is your battery fully charged? Does it do this with all lipos you have tried?

Check the ends of the battery plug wires. They could be frayed under the insulation.

Batteries are charged and leads are ok.

Sure looks like the LiPo low voltage cut-off kicking in.

because the blue light is going on and off, it looks like a loose connection somewhere and the motor is shutting off temporarily as a failsafe.

i had one do that new out of the box. and the fix, unfortunately, was a new board under warranty from HH.

in your case, you may have just jostled something a bit too much. i'd look for bad/loose solders between the battery and the board. it will be tricky, as you do have connection. just not a good one.

good luck.

if it ain't broke, break it.
