    Fly a P3P and use prop guards but flip it into some thick brush and broke I could shut it down heard motor sqeeled very loud for a few seconds. Every thing seems fine and have flown a few time now to get my confidence back. Is there anything I need be concerned with since all seems OK and Flys great. Oh, after one prop was very hard to remove so replaced it with new. Thank, Bennett flying for 6 months and almost every night.

    Sounds like what my P3P did after I did some lite tree trimming a couple of weeks ago. The squeal was so loud I thought my system was done for. Nope, everything seems to working fine. Probably shortened the life of the motors some but working fine for now.

    Always make sure you spin each motor by hand and see if any motor has more resistance than the others before each flight and feel each motor to see if one is abnormally hot after each flight. Either one of those can indicate a motor is going bad and should be replaced.
