    I was flying my Phantom in my neighborhood today at about 150 feet and one of the props came off. It came down on the neighbor's roof and bounced off onto the ground. I lost the prop and nut and broke the prop guards, but everything else looks ok. My problem is that the M1 motor won't run and is constantly emitting a beeping sound. I've checked all the connections and the red light under the ESC comes on when the battery is attached. I also plugged the M2 motor into the M1 slot on the NAZA and the M2 motor runs, so I believe the NAZA is OK. I'm thinking about ordering a new motor.

    Any help or advise appreciated. Thanks; Steve

    Electronic speed controller. It's the thing that tells the motor how fast to spin.
