    Mine has a the same problem. I sent this in to DJI they have yet to respond.
    My FC 40 is grounded. I did try a new ESC that did not help.

    Have you cracked it open and checked that all the leads are still plugged in correctly ?

    if its not the ESC that went out on you then its got to be one of the windings in the motor is broke. It don't take much to break one of them delicate wires in the motors. But also if any of the 3 wires that go to the motor are broken off it can also cause a stuttering motor.

    the way its moving in the video were its going backwards every few turns looks to be some thing other then a rock snagging up any thing inside. Tho It could very well of been caused by a rock getting in there and breaking one of the winding wires. or even if it just scraped off any of the varnish on the winding wires can cause a short between wraps.

    after a crash its a good idea to use a flash light and inspect the motors to make sure nothing is inside the top openings or between the stator and the outer bell. Such as a rock dirt or twigs.
