    I bought the drone upgraded, flew it first time, and crashed it into a tree. The one motor seems to sputter and not move too well and heat up. I have checked and the eclip is seated fine. I was told the the ESC needs replacement and not the motor. I have noticed that having the drone on and if I try and flick the propeller in the direction of spin several times, it will start working. If i have the stick on controller moved to spin the propeller it will not move any faster, but will do so if i do the flicking i noted before.
