    have a hexcopter, I built it but it never flew, I burned up 8 motors or more, I put an 11.1 v 25 c battery on it, I bought 1000 kv 12 volt max motors for it a kk2.1.5 flight controller , 6 Electronic speed controllers, My Problem is 1.)i keep frying the motors 2.) I rarly see all motors spinning at the same time, so it always crashes before level flight, now, I decided that it was pulling so much current that it couldnt deliver enogh power to all 6 motors so, I put in 3 ohm resistors to lower the current going to the speed controllers and then motors, a modest 3 ohms, fried them emediatly, what should I do to make this work, anyone got an idea?

    Were you using the recommended prop size for the motor?
