Sorry, maybe the word "crashing" is a little extreme lets just call it a "not so perfect landing". I am still pretty new at this and because of the weather and my inexperience I haven't done much flying but it's suppose to hit 60F (in Minnesota) tomorrow and plan to do some serious flying. Getting back to my question (sorry) I have been watching a lot of you tube videos lately of nothing but drone crashes, trying to learn from others mistakes. One thing I have noticed is that in most of these hard landings the drone will be tipped so that two of four motor/props will be on or against the ground while the other two are still spinning. I can't help but wonder with two motors stopped doesn't/wouldn't the drone want to stop the other two? This can't be good. I understand that you would probably want to command a shut down of the motors in the event of a, we'll just call it a hard landing. What if it goes down behind some obstruction where you lost tx command will the two motors not in contact with the ground still be spinning? and the two that aren't will the motors burn up because they want to spin but can't?
