    Hi all,

    I took P1 out for a morning spin. I saw my balancing rod for self-tightening props came in the mail. I removed two props for balancing. As I tried to remove a 3rd, the motor seems to have seized. Is there something I can do?? It's still under warranty from B&H so I don't want to spend much time before I need to send it back.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    Brian

    It doesn't sound like something you can fix without voiding your waranty

    Looking at it simply... it can only be bearings or more likely foreign material got in there.

    It is highly magnetized and would easily attract some FM.

    Hope didn't remove your propguards and then put the long screws back into the motors.
