Estes proto x for parts or repair

Hi I have an Estes ProtoX Quadcopter for repair. When I purchased it it flew great but the flight times were low at about two minutes or less. Since then I flew it many times, changed out the props with new ones, but the one motor finally failed and it has been sitting for a while. I have pictures but do to technical difficulties I cant load them just now.

This deal includes:

1) The complete copter in good physical shape with recently installed props. Not flyable due to one motor that wont rotate. (it is the B motor with the black prop that is inoperative).

Note: after fiddling with it the motor rotates but wont lift off vertically due to the motor not putting out.

2) Two sets of new props in the package, one replacement set from estes in the sealed pack, and one new set that came with the quad in the tiny Ziploc.

3) Usb charge cord.

4) Stock Transmitter.

I just inspected this aircraft with a bright light and my wifes' reading glasses and have determined that it is in good condition with no cracks or broken wires. It is in Un-airworthy condition due to one erratic motor as described above. All the led's are functional and the only discrepancy is the defective motor.


One protox needs motor repair (has recent new props installed)

two new sets of props , charge cord and transmitter with batteries.

Price 15.00 shipped in the lower 48.

Tracking and insurance at buyers cost and option.

Will be shipped usps cheapest way, or expedited at additional charge.

No warranty expressed or implied, but comes with honest inspection as described.

Nice set of parts.

Picture borrowed from internet thank you! Should be able to download actual pictures soon. Includes all as described above. Thanks for reading my long winded add.

Blue skies,

Awesome little ride

Such a cool little critter I hate to see her go! In the hands of a good micro quad copter repair shop this thing will scream again. It just needs one of the motors replaced probably...

Love these little quads though if I don't get a good offer I will just buy another one!

The other three motors are fine, in my experience this sort of thing can be brushes or maybe if your lucky its just a solder joint!

Happy flying,

price reduced!

I have one offer of 15 shipped, I will wait until tomorrow to move on .

I did check the solder joint and it didn't help. The motors are 12 dollars and the entire copter can be had for 34-39 dollars.
