Slipping Upper Rotor

Hi guys,

Very new to RC Heli's (got one this xmas), but good with mechanical stuff. Anyway, I have been... reckless with my S107. I broke one and just got another, but now I have the same problem and am looking to fix them.

After flying into a ceiling/wall and crashing to the ground a couple times, the upper rotor no longer spins. It feels like I am turning a gear when I try to turn it, where before, it appeared to spin freely. Is this a common problem for newb pilots? Is the type of thing I can just glue or replace with a high degree of reliability? I guess I am a little wary of deciding for myself what is broken and what isn't when I have no experience and 2 broken helicopters.

Is it worth replacing parts, or at 30 bucks, should I just get another copter AND some spare parts? I think I saw a place offering a free bag of replacement parts with purchase.
