    Hi all,

    I've given myself the task (feeling increasingly stupid) of building a drone over the Christmas break. I'm having some trouble getting the motors running on betaflight.

    These are the components:

    ESC: Tekko 32 4in1
    FC: Kakute F7
    Battery: 4s Lipo 14.8v
    Motors: Not sure what they're called!

    Motors connected to the ESC, ESC connected by 8pin ribbon to FC. Pins match correctly. Battery attached to the ESC.

    Initial setup worked almost perfectly, only 1 motor was not powering up and spinning in betaflight. So I took everything apart and resoldered the problem motor wires onto the ESC.

    Now none of the motors are working!

    Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

    Thanks in advance, I'm excited to read through some conversations on here.
