    Heeeelp!! Heeeelp!!

    My motor has also stopped working!!! what can I do? It gets REALLY REALLY HOT!! WhenI power on the phantom all motors run except one and that arm's led does not light up also... I have changed the Naza ports in order to see if it was the naza or the esc/motor... but when I did the other motor worked fine! How can I know if it is the ESC or the motor?? All the wires seem to be in good condition and well connected!

    All this happened after a crash today...

    Help me please!Help me please!Help me please!

    Re: Motor get extremely hot! and does not work like the othe

    Just going on advice I got from other here after a crash. Same thing for me, no led, no spinny on one motor. I was advised that this is a bad ESC, about $20 so no biggie. Upon further research, I found that no LED might also mean a bad motor, so I'm changing out the ESC today or tomorrow and I'll go from there. Kind of wish I would have ordered both motor and ESC right away just in case.
