Fly it like you stole it!
Question

click click click?


I hope this is the right forum for this but any way I have a parkzone corsair and I just flew into a tree It fell to the ground nose first and the motor took a hard hit. It still runs but the plane shakes and it makes a clicking sound when it runs, is it just the shaft? Any help is much appreciated Thanks!

Sure sounds like it to me.
But the motor housing or gearbox frame, if you have a geardrive, could be buggered up too.
You'll have to pull it out and check it over.

Could be the shaft bent, prop hub bent, both bent, firewall damaged, junk (dirt) in the motor, or the bearings got slammed and now brinnelled (little dents in the races). Combination of all of the above.
earl's right-time to take it apart and figure out what you bent/broke.

Pull the retainer clip off the back of the motor and pull the rotor out. Inspect the stator for scrapes. Also inspect you magnets. Then spin the rotor just in front of the stator and view the motor from the back. Look for wobble of the rotor.
