Default Lower Blades not Spinning- Mini RC Heli

I have a Falcon XVII 4channel mini RC Helicoper
that I crashed into a wall and broke

I'm new to RC Heli's and I was wondering if anyone here could give me some advice on how to fix it.. if any.

It seems that the lower two blades are not firing off, here's a video i uploaded on youtube showing the trauma

Also...

All of the parts and screws all seem to be there and intact.
I took the cover off after the crash to inspect it better.

One of the gears fell off the motor.

Coaxials are notorious for that,(loosing the gear or pinion). Yes, it can be fixed IF you can find that pinion and re-affix it to the motor. If you plan to use some type of adhesive on the
pinion and shaft,makesure it doesn't drip into the teeth. Cause then they get really crappy,( noise, vibration ect.).

Smaller pinions are not sold individually, they usually come with the whole motor. I ran into this very same situation in the begining with smaller coaxials, however never had it with myfirst reltively larger heli (Syma 031) that thing is built like a tank.

Hope this helps.
