Do not know how or what was wrong originally but that motor still works today, although it has been removed from the Radjet to experiment with other motors and 3S setups. Anyways, hopefully yours will be easy to fix. Have you tried taking it apart and putting back together again?
It isn't my plane. It's a friend's. I think the motor isn't designed to be a pusher. I's designed to pull. I like the way HK state it's a "specially wound motor". It's the same as the a la cart one in their catalog. Whatever.
