    I bought a DOF P3 during spring this year. For the most part, I am pretty happy about it. It likes to lean to the right a little regardless of balancing and anything I try. Recently though, my motor 1 (left front) has been lagging. When racing and braking on a level surface, my right side would drop as is expected; but the left would hesitate. It got to the point it was feeling weird. I went onto SMC3 to check it out. I did the recalibration as described my DOF. I noticed the motor not wanting to rotate counterclockwise willingly.

    When looking at the SMC3 screen the sensor line is flat.

    I do not know enough to see if something is terribly wrong in the program, but I imagine the line are supposed to match. Any ideas or did my motor just crap out?

    Before messing with anything have you contacted DOFreality for support?

    Not yet. I will do that now. Just waited to see if anyone had this problem before I start talking with DOF.
