APM 2.5 peak vibration

Hi guys,

I need help to find out my problem.

I have a quad on a sk450 frame with apm 2.5, FkSry tx/rx, AfroESC 30a, 28-30s 900kv motors and neo-ublox gps.

I crash my quad last week. Apart the four propellers and some nylon spacers and screw, everything's else seems to be on shape.

I then rebuild my quad correctly and change the propellers. Before I used standard plastic props and now I putted carbon props.

My problem is now i'm not able to run the quad smoothly. I did a 3-4 minutes tests flight by keeping the altitude at max 8-9 feets and three times while the flight I got a "crazy" quad. I attached the IMU log...as you can see I got peak vibrations 3 times corresponding with my "crazy" sequence.

So now, i'm trying to find what causing this strange behavior. Before, with my setup, I have perfect vibration value. My APM is still on a fiber shock absorber anti-vibration set.

Is there a possibility that with my crash I damaged my motors and it cause more and more vibration on my quad ? 

I'm beginner in the quad world and was very happy of what I done with my quad...but now, I'm disappoint because i'm not able to find out my problem :|

What stresses me a little is that when I order the pieces I have to wait a 3 weeks for the shipping so I would like to be sure sure as much as possible before buying pieces.

Many thanks for reading.

  • Have you balanced properly your new carbon props? they usually come very badly balanced.

    • Leonardo, nop, did not balanced the props. Probably my bad but I thought that because they are made in carbon I do not have to do this ?!

      I'll take a look of that.

      Is it possible that I have behavior like that by "only" having unbalanced props ?

      Since my last post I read a lot about bearing in the motor, is there another possibility of my problem ?

      Thanks,

        Noooh, carbon definitely need balancing just like all props.  

        Vibrations from an unbalanced prop show up differently at diff RPM, so they may have seemed good, but caused problems later.

        A crash also could have caused a nick or other damage to the props to make it worse.

        Prop vibration also wears out motor bearings, so this could have been getting worse also.
