Did my first flight today with my MAir 2S and during the flight a warning popped up that said ' Motor Error - Check propellors and fly with caution'.  I landed immediately and double-checked that the props were installed correctly and they were.
This is the exact error warning: Motor error. Check propellers and fly with caution (Code: 30163)

This warning popped up about 4 times during my flight - should I be concerned ??

Blades were definitely installed correctly, having been a Mavic 2 Zoom flyer for the past 3 years and never seen that warning before. I landed, double-checked the blades, even removing each one and reinstalling.  Did another flight and the pop warning message appeared again.

I recall a few similar issues from earlier threads, so maybe check the following...
- Any strange motor noises when idle on the ground?
- Do the motors feel smooth when turning?

Obviously fly with caution and keep an ear & eye out on anything strange on the first few flights.

Thanks RobZilla,

Having only had the drone for 2 days and subsequently only done 1 or 2 short flights, I really havent noticed anything unusual.  It is a bit un-nerving to see that pop up warning though.

Maybe the log would tell which motor/ prop may be giving the errors. I think this might end up being be a DJI return, sorry!

Have you tried putting the other propellers back again. It would be interesting to know if you get the error back again. If you get the error back, can you see any warping or other things on the props compared to the one that works. Just interested to know how sensitive this issue is.

Did you only get an error or did you also hear the drone make a strange sound? I have the same issues, new set of propellers on the way currently for my Dji Mini 2. Check out this video, this is what it sounds like for me (this is my video): https://youtu.be/9HwH5yxeWMk
