Tello spins on axis uncontrollably after calibration and few minutes into flight.
Battery is fully charged, software is updated, pinhole on bottom is clear, no motor or prop issue.

Mainly fly inside of house.. so I’m not doing anything crazy with it for know.

Can anyone help or know is someone that can repair.
Thank you

Are you using a controller or phone only?
Which flight app are you using?
When you say uncontrollably, do you have any control at all? up down left right?
Have you updated FW lately?

I've read some posts here lately that say squirrely flight issues were solved by the latest firmware update. I haven't done the update and don't plan to, mine flies and hovers fine.

Good luck, hope you get it solved quick (and cheap lol)

Have you tried it without the controller, just the phone?

Hard crash impact directly on even a new motor, while the motor is spinning, can cut its life short. Just a thought. I was challenged the first time i found myself troubleshooting eol motors. The symptoms were very similar to a variety of other issues. Finally replaced motors and was flying like new.

After a few minutes of attempted flight, check to see if any of the motors are hot, or hotter than the others. Good luck!
