    It does not sound different when powered on. It just feels different to the touch.

    Remove the motor and check the C-clip, there's been a few reports of that coming loose.

    If you diagnose it as just a bearing, no need to buy a new motor - you can get Phantom motor replacement bearing sets for $20 or less to service all four motors.

    Bearing changes can be done without having to unsolder the motor (if there's enough slack in your motor wires you may not actually have to open the shell, either). Motor replacement will, obviously, require some soldering skills.

    Thank you, So far it still flies just fine, thought I think it is a bearing. Can you point me in the direction of replacement parts for sale?

    I just put "DJI Phantom motor bearings" into Google... You're more likely to get results relevant to your location. ;)
