Hi I am pretty new to the forum and yesterday I had my first crash of my brand new Y6. I built this from scratch, and had flown it 6 times. Since the first flight I had sudden pitch movements/glitches but they went away after less than a minute of the first flight. Then yesterday during the 6th flight I had one of the motors stop rotating mid flight and I could see some smoke coming out of one of the ESCs, after the crash, and checking the ESCs, one of them smells like it burned up and the sticker seems to have some heat damage.
My question is how can I tell what happened during the flight from the logs? I can see in the current graph that normally it was consuming around 20-25A during the whole flight until the end where there is a spike to around 40 AMPS. But is there a way to tell from the logs which motor was failing?
The second question is, what should I replace? just the ESC that failed? or also the motor? Should I check the power distribution board also, and what would I check? and what about the Current sensor for the APM, to what current is that rated? is there a possibility that was damaged too?
And the final question, what could have caused the ESC to fail? I would not want to replace everything just to have it fail again in case there is something else wrong that caused the failure.
