I had an interesting incident yesterday while operating my BR2 Heavy-- I lost contact with the vehicle for a bit, but it recovered, and when it did there was smoke visible inside the electronics enclosure and I had lost my two front lateral thrusters. Video of the event is visible here:
Now I need to figure out what happened and what actually died. I’m genuinely amazed that the vehicle recovered and kept going after whatever is was that went wrong, and upon inspection there’s nothing obviously burnt up and everything except thrusters 1 and 2 seems fine.
Update-- both thrusters test OK, so I guess both ESCs are differently dead. I’m going to replace all 6 of the old ones just in case, and swap my spare thruster in for #1 since it does feel different than the others.
