    Hi i have 4 motors that i replaced from my phantom 1 but i know that a copuple of them are working yet. how can i test all for motors in order to know which works well? the motors arent connected anymore so its impossible to test them with naza assistant. another quiestion, do de motors die when long prop guards screws al inserted?
    Thanks a lot!

    Test the stator windings for continuity and DCR measuring between any two leads at a time. wiggle and manipulate the armature by hand feeling for excessive end float and axial play and abscence of roughness when turning.

    Long screws are one of the best known ways to quicky butcher one of these motors.
