Hi all, I come from a background flying fixed wing and R/C cars before that. I was out of the hobby for about 10 years but recently got a basic drone with all the safety nannies, which is fun but more than a bit slow. Then I stumbled across the Tower/ Horizon offered Rise Indorfin. I pasted the below paragraph from another forum, hoping to get an answer tonight if possible. I have a new motor coming but no ESCs available anymore. If I have to, I'll re-engineer this thing with a 4 in 1.

I've got a Rise indorfin that I've been flying for about a month. Last weekend I hit a tree and killed a motor. I want to check the ESCs to see if they are okay. Can I move a motor from another arm to the missing arm and power it up safely without risking the empty ESC? Pull the props of course but what I'm wondering is will it damage an ESC if power is connected but there's no motor connected on the other side. Thanks!
