Reset the ESC of an UpAir One

If for whatever reason one or more motors are not performing as they should, you could try to do a ESC reset.
The ESC reset does exactly what it says, it resets the ESC’s in the drone, and supplies the same amount of power to all 4 of them.

If you are planning to upgrade the motors like I did, you have to do this as well

Here is the procedure


  1. hello again , im wondering if anyone can help . Recently i had a rough landing of my upair 1 where it flipped over on landing and rotors continued to try and turn .It took about ten seconds to shut down power to rotors and all seemed well no broken blades got ready to fly again good satellite lock (14) but on lift off there was a strange surge of power and it flips over . Is this a sign of bad esc or bad motor. Does any one have any ideas what this may be as im perplexed any help would be much appreciated. many thanks in advance.

  2. I have just bought a upair one v1.2.
    My first flight was not bad but it would not position hold nor altitude hold very well kept moving.
    I had already put in a USB mod so connected it to mission planner no trouble, and it did a firmware upgrade which I could not stop once started.
    Now when I turn it on there is no GPS lock ons yet MP says there are 12 and you can not arm the motors.
    What have I done????? and more over how do I fix????

  3. Hello.

  4. Hi I have an upair one plus drone and can not get any of the four motors to power up. The drone did fly perfect, turned off after last flight, recharged battery and now the motors will not power up. I have tried everything, without success. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks. David

  5. I’m having this same issue in the video with the same motor. I have tied the “ESC” reset with no luck. Any suggestions on something else?

  6. I have a 4k UPAir One and had a rough landing where the unit was upside down and the motors held by the grass. Now one motor won’t turn on. I have tried resetting the ESC following the procedure in the video but now two motors don’t start up. Can anyone give the instructions in text format so I can make sure I’m doing each step? I don’t know if it matters what the other switches are set to or if there is a time that the steps must be done to do the ESC reset. Also, my controller screen doesn’t behave the same way that the one in the video does. I don’t see the blue screen or any text coming across it. Does that make a difference in being able to do the ESC reset? Has the controller and drone interface changed the way ESC reset should be done for my model?
