    Hey Everyone, first post here and wanted to get your opinions on this sound and what I should possibly do.

    I go over each motor in the video and it's the second motor in the clip, I revisit it and hold it from moving and even though you can hear the engine clicking trying to rotate you can still tell from the audio how much quieter the quad is in general without it spinning.

    I'm not having any flight issues (YET) but I noticed this noise after my 5th or 6th flight and it was very noticeable with the blades off.

    What do you think I should do, is it OK to fly or should I get it repaired?

    Have to admit that was a good giggle. Some one that can hear much better than I can will post soon.

    Replacing the motor doesn't seem like an easy task, and I'm assuming it's going to void my warranty, right?

    If you have a warranty, let them fix it.

    I concur, if it is under warranty, it is their problem. If you don't replace & it fails, you would have a next to impossible chore to have them fix it then :p
