My Spire stated spinning like crazy last weekend for no reason since I wasn't shooting. It ripped up the paddles. Virtue said send to them and they'll take care of it. They are taking care of the Spires with pretty much no questions asked, except what's wrong with it. Call or email them.

I had the same issue. IT was due to the spire constantly spinning, even when full.

I sent it to virtue and they replaced the spire drive and fix my spinning issue.

Yeah, my loader was loading really inconsistently and had trouble over 13bps and I just discovered my paddles are all on the brink of falling off. I'm contacting Virtue asap.

Is the spires really finicky like that? It seems too much of a hassle compared to a rotor

it was a bad batch i believe...we are sponsored by virtue and almost everyone on the team that got one (over 10), had to get new paddles...i pulled mine out of the box and used it at a tournament, and it was constantly spinning...i went to bunker someone and stoped the bunker before his to turn it off then back onn so it wouldnt give me away comeing down haha....but i also had to mess with the sensitivity to get it to stop

Usually virtue will send you a new drive with no problem if you contact them. You have to set the spire up properly out of the box. Turn the sensitivity down and standby mode off. This will fix the issue of it constantly spinning. I've had ZERO problems with mine because I set it up properly before putting paint in it.

I'm curious, why does the power saving feature cause these problems?

Mine pulsed and it tore up the paddles. Contacted Virtue and got new board and paddle wheel.
