Default Tail Motor Pinion?

I picked up a Dark Night 2se today and flew it several times. The last time my tail motor failed (after about 5 flights). I noticed that I can't remove the motor without pulling the pinion gear. This might seem like a silly question, but how do I get the pinion off?

You need a micro pinion puller to get the gear off. It's easier to use a sharp knife to scrape away a little plastic to enlarge the hole so you can get the motor out. It doesn't take much.
