    Hi I have search for an answer to my question without getting quite the information I'm after .
    I always land my P3S on a 1.2m carpet tile but a week ago flipped it off upside down onto the dirt .The ground was hard so not much loose dirt more dust really .No apparent damage but now I can hear a whistle in the front right motor when its under load .It still flies ok although does not seem to hold position as well ie moves up and down and around a bit .
    I have read about blowing the motor out with air .Is this done while the motor is still in the phantom or do you have to open it up and take it out ? Also can it be done with air compressor air .I know this air can contain some contaminants (oil/moisture).It seems that this is not that successful most of the time anyway .Your comments would be appreciated .
