Default motor won't turn anymore?

Hi all. I have a mini-Telemaster with a 480 park motor and a 40 amp ESC. It flew great last week and took it out today and the motor just quivered back and forth? I tried changing the three wires around on the esc but nothing. The battery is fully charged too?????? I have changed nothing since the last flight? Any thoughts? Thanks

Default RE: motor won't turn anymore?

I wish I had some answers for you but I am parking a question here as well. Fully charged battery, same 40 amp ESC, 11x8E prop on a GP SU31 and it was flying as though I had airbrakes on the whole flight. very sluggish, and seemed to lack power. just plodded around like a blimp. saw your post, and thought I would add to it. I love the engine but wanted to know if anyone knows if you fly it a lot (and not abuse it) will it eventually lose performance?
