    After one month of flying flawlessly, my Phantom V+ v3 has got a bad prop motor. It seems to stall and makes a bad noise as you can see in the video.
    I checked that all the prop motor screws were tight. Looked for any obstruction and could not see any. Blew some compressed air in just in case some dust was in. I also recalibrated it via software. The problem is still on.
    All other motors are fine. Flew it a few days ago with no problem. I did do the camera software update along with the iOS app update since last flight, but doubt it has anything to do with my problem.
    The Phantom never crashed and did not get any shock.
    What do i do next?

    Possibly a fried ESC.
