Hi I'm new but I am old. Built the drone in my Avatar a few years ago so I have some idea.
As you look down on the bebop it was the left front motor showing as faulty. I swapped that motor for its diagonal opposite and did a factory reset. Fault still showing as left front. Checked the cable to the motor as best I could in place then decided to swap the front two harness's. Yep still left front. So now I am down to a motherboard fault. I have ordered another but I wondered what your thoughts are on it?
EDIT: Also this Bebop has the Power 11.4v battery and charger and also the blue light not red. I saw a guy on YT saying he had received one like this although the box is just for the Bebop2. Bit sick at having to get a another motherboard as the current one has only done a flight time of 1hr.43min.
Can the flight time be deleted with a "super reset" or software?

I had the same issue after a crash into snow and the drone got wet. Had to replace the motherboard. I found a good used one on Ebay.

Mine is second hand from eBay Ā£21. Comes with all 4 motor cables and wifi. It is more complete than mine is now.šŸ˜
The prices are so little I think I will build myself a stripped down version of one. Remove the nose cone and use a conventional battery with an XT60 make it look custom. See if I can do it for less than Ā£30šŸ˜

FIXED!
Had a test flight this morning in the living room. Usually a mistake, but it was raining. Battery went very quickly so I will have a look at that.
Got very interesting when I tried my usual hand catch landing.
I had a very big angry wasp in my hand trying to get away. Never had a sensor underneath before. I ended up having to do that DJI thing of flipping it on its back to stop it.šŸ˜

Battery drains quickly after heat damage after leaving in hot car all day or somewhere hot it only takes on time then the battery is shot
