MSL Left side motor wont shut off

So I was doing some flying today and after a nice landing my Left side motor (One with the orange plastic part at the back of the motor as apposed to the black at the right side) would not stop spinning. It just kept going at full throttle and turning the plane and or transmitter did nothing at all.

I'm opening the plane up now removing the white covers for the motors which will be replaced with light weight zip ties and I'll be removing some weight from this plane, (like removing the landing gear as I never use it).

Any suggestions why this motor wont stop?
The LVC kicked in finally and it stopped but I have yet to recharge at all....I guess I'll try that now.

I did a search and found nothing of this problem....
I'm hoping someone has heard of this and has a fix.

If not, I guess its no big deal. School is started and it will be getting cold soon anyway and next season will bring me a new plane...
I'm thinking of sizing up to the real good ones this time instead of using these toys from airhogs...

charging only started the motor spinning again until i stopped charging.

so one of the board components have failed...
ill have to call Spinmaster Monday morning and see what they suggest and if they cant help I'll just save the remote and toss the plane...saving the motors for some other project.

My first one did the same thing after the first flight. It kept running until the battery ran out and just came back on when I tried to charge it. It even kept running after I turned it off. Very odd. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, so I returned it. Spinmaster is great about replacing defective stuff, so if they can't help you, they'll probably give you a new one, anyway.

I think I might try your glider transplant. I have one that works the way its supposed to and IMO it still makes a better paper weight.
