You probably could fix it, but I'm no expert at repaiing brushless engines. But just do what I did, ship it back to Horizon. They never ask how long you've had the engine, or even ask for a receipt. You send it back with a brief description of the problem, and they'll send you a brand new one:-)

Easy.......

OK,
I believe this is more than coincidence. I was running the recommended 11x4.7 prop and this is about my 30th flight and the motor came apart in the air. Thank God the plane floated to the ground, but this was unbelievable. I will be calling eflite

I just hope my ESC is ok. It was pretty warm by the time I got to the plane. I may send both back to E-flite just for measure.
