    I'll make it short: does anyone know the answer?
    Should I return the motor or buy a new ESC?

    edit: forgot to mention that I had a crash!

    Hope you guys can help me.
    Thanks!

    If you crashed, you may have broken your ESC. To find out for certain, swap motors. You'll need a soldering iron to do it. If you're serious about flying Phantoms, you'd better plan on learning to solder, if you aren't already proficient.

    Thanks for your time. Please reread the question.
    I already changed the motor and I know soldering. The video is the result after changing the motor.
    Now the motor is delivered defect (because the motor itself rotates not that smooth) OR I'm trying to run the new motor on a defect ESC.

    Reworded question:
    How can I best find out the defect module?
