    Hi - My Phantom is 2 months old and I'm having a problem. I removed my propeller guards and replaced the appropriate screws. Now, my motors stutter and do not turn freely. I assumed that I had tightened the screws too tightly after removing the guards. However, after loosening the screws, the problem persists.

    Can anyone give me a clue as to what I can do to fix this.

    Thank you.

    Martin

    You don't have to make multiple threads to be heard Martin.

    Martin, You shorted out the motor winding. The motor needs to be replaced.They run about $30 and need to be soldered to the ESC. This is going to be minor surgery for your Phantom.
