    Propellers spin then the drone cuts out

    Hi All,
    I'm a noob to quadcopters/drones and dont really know where to start when problem solving.
    I have a Syma X5SW-1 and have managed just one flight. The day after this success i powered it up again pushed the accelerater forward to find the propellers would spin for about a second then the drone just dies. I have multiple batteries and all are fully charged.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I had the same problem with my old Syma. For me it was the battery, but it could very well be the main board.
