motor screech

I have a sky scooter and last time I flew it I heard major screeching noises coming from the motor as well as a funny smell. The motor sounded like it was rubbing against metal and I lost a whole bunch of power. I took it apart and oiled it real good and it seemed to do a little better. Its been in the air probably about 70-80 times and on the radio shack bats with the 9X6 gws props. I'm pretty sure I need a new motor but I just want to know what happened. Was it caused by neglect of oil, or worn brushes? I have the air scoops on the plane and I'm pretty sure it has enough cooling air circulating around the motor. Anybody out there have similar experience with an electric motor?
