    I have a solid light on one esc and motor wont spin.


    Guess I trashed and ESC, switched out motor and same thing solid light and no spin up.

    These just go??

    Was lucky it went on a low level flight. Something didn't seem right with the motor, so I was testing it. Is it possible a bad motor would trash an ESC?

    Thanks for any insight...

    For sure a bad motor could trash the ESC. I have a questionable motor now. I have to exchange the entire unit with B&H though. They can't send out just parts.

    I bought from B&H also, but don't want to ship this thing around for a $20 part.

    Thanks
