Default motor issues

hello, my horizon hobby ecx Barrage btd is having motor issues, the motor will beep and not work if I floor it right off the bat, (I run the standard 900mah battery included) also, if I run it further than literally 2 meters away or for longer than around ten seconds, it freezes up and beeps (the servo still works fine) I have already cleaned it multiple times with appropriate motor cleaners and grease but those three problems are still there! what advice does the rc community have?

Is this a brand new build with all new electronics, or have you been running this for a while, and then the motor failed?

Reason I ask is I wonder if the motor may have over heated and might need to be replaced?

Worth a read here:
What gearing for upgraded electronics?

I'd be willing to bet the motor has aged and needs to be replaced
