    The prop bolt on the motor broke off the motor itself. Is it possible to attach a new bolt to mount the prop or do I just buy a new motor?

    Well I have to assume when you say 'bolt' that you mean the shaft (of the rotor).

    If that is the case than yes, you need a new motor.

    Yes, the shaft. Thanks Are there any upgraded rotors that you would suggest?

    No I cannot, but I'm sure others can (will?).
