    So I've figured out motor 2 CW needs to be replaced. Thanks to the YouTube videos I found to verify. I already ordered the new motor. Just for fun, I wanted to go for a flight. So connected everything and while the bad motor was spinning sporadicly, I reached down and gave it a spin (cw) by hand. The bugger fires up and I just flew threw my second battery down to almost depletion. It's very weird but once I got it going it was fun. Can't wait to get the new motor in. If anyone is having problems like this give it a try. It's a little scary because what it if dies in the air but I figure as long as it's got the voltage going to it, everything should be awesome. Cheers

    Hey Rustynuts. Did you try to give it a push? Just curious.

    Yes I did and it did spin up so I flew it again yesterday with no problems but like you I'm worried about it totally failing while flying. I just got mine through Amazon last week so I decided it's going back and they are sending a new one right out. That 30 day no questions is kinda nice sometimes.
