CX2 spinning in circles

Earlier this year I ordered a couple new batteries and a carbon fiber tail boom for my CX2. The last time I flew it prior to recieving these items it flew fine.
I didn't fly it for about 1 1/2 months. Then the next time I tried to fly it, it would just spin in a circle. It appeared that one set of blades would spin faster that the other. It's been so long since I last tried to mess with it that I don't recall which ones spin faster. Anyway, I have the bug to fly again and am I looking at replacing the motors, the 3 in 1 or what? When I first bought it about a year ago I crashed it and it didn't fly worth a damn. It was the 3 in 1 unit that needed replacing then. Any advice as to what is causing it to spin in circles? Any comments would be appreciated.

You will probablly find dirt/hair in your bearings. Complete teardown and cleaning might fix it. Try spinning her up one rotor at a time and observe which one it is. A set screw might not be in place or tight. Hope this helps. Happy flying. Lee
