Hello. I just regestured to this forum website. I did an introduction. In short, I purchased a Karma drone in January of 2018. I have not flown it yet. I noticed a clicking noise when I extend the front left (camera side) propeller leg. It is clicking inside the hinge somewhere.The other three legs do not click. Is it supposed to do this? It opens fine and feels like it seats well in its position. They all feel the same. It’s the “snap” or click noise I’m concerned about in the one leg. Sounds like a piece of plastic or something. Again, Just concerned is as it is important to me. Note: The drone is new and has never flown. Waiting on being ready for it all. Thanks. Reno.127D445E-745E-49B0-8456-E61F7AC90151.jpeg

Open it up and power it and controller up. I forget all that you have to do for first time setup, but if an issue with any arm there will be a warning arm not fully open. If no alarm I would assume fine as long as arm feels locked in place - takes a little force to pop it back towards closed position.

Hi guys,

I bought my Karma drone in Jan 2019. Its front left arm/leg is kinda clicking when folding back to the collapsed position. That is the only arm that is producing this sound. It is new, never flown or used in any way...is this something that I should be concerned about?

Much appreciated, peace.
