Dead motor on 2nd flight since build...

Thought Id share a small video of my little 3D plane flight. You can hear when the motor dies. Amazingly no damage was done, just looked worse then what it was. This is the 6th flight or so flying planes, had a couple on a trainer then this. But ive been flying my heli for about 7 months. Enjoy.

Did a magnet come loose ?

The motor seemed to be quite noisy right from the start.

If it was only second flight, and no nose dives to hurt motor,then the company you got it from will most likely replace it with new motor. maybe

hey FF!....Ya magnets came loose, like 4 of them id say. I could fix it but eh, the newer version of that model is only 20 bucks so there ya go. Only put that on that plane cuase I thought it would be funny with that big motor and a 6 cell on that 3 pound plane hehe. I decided to put the eflight 25 motor on it with a 14X7 prop and maybe run a 3 or 4 cell battery. With a 3 cell 2200mah batt, it weighs in at 2.2 pounds. The weight was stated at 3.5, so I was thinking I got room to bump the mah up to 3300 or so and maybe a 4 cell.


Opinions??
