Only 2 of the Motors Working

Hello all. I am new to this type of work and I am having a fairly large problem, it would be great if you took some time to help me out.I have the APM 2.5 as well as 3D robotics ESCs as well as a spektrum dx5e  and am running a quadcopter. When I calibrate the ESCs and the manually or automatically all ESCs perform correctly the first time after plugging the lipo in and putting the throttle controller to the right. However, when I try to do this again and plug in the lipo for a second time,…See More
