So spot lock decided to [censored] out during the sealy tournament. It will just turn the motor on high and spin in circles. Already called motor guide to troubleshoot and nothing working so I have to take it to the shop luckily it's still under warranty. Just curious if anyone else has had this issue and if so what was the fix.

Not sure what the fix is, but I have a question. Do you disconnect the power from the TM when charging it? I’ve heard that leaving it plugged in while charging can fry one of the boards...

I have an Xi5, have not had that problem. Some times mine will not engage the anchor function on the first punch of the button, but it will on the 2nd. The first punch it will turn about 45 degrees and stop but the motor doesn't start running. Otherwise, it works fine.
