My Hawk Sky engine is acting weird after I had to re-glue one of the magnets in after a crash..

I disassembled it epoxied the magnet back in and then reassembled it.

now it shuts off with any load..

video of behavior below..



any ideas?

ESC? Motor Toast?

Mr. Pilot101, I don't think that motor will mount the same as the Microjet V3 or the stock
Hawk Sky motor.... The front of that motor is where the motor mount goes and the rear
of the motor spins not the front... Could be a little tricky mounting it.... All I did with the
Microjet was screw it to the wooden mount like this

And then I hot glued that to the face of the pod.... Easy peasy...

That motor would have to somehow fit inside the pod or be mounted with the
shaft inside the pod.... I have a few motors like that and I can not figure out
how to mount them....

For $49.00 you can have a Microjet V3 with everything you need and an extra
battery....

Oh yea... You would need this also... I screwed the motor mount to this wooden
piece and then hot glued that to the face of the pod... Worked great and took
all of about 10min to do......
