Default Motor dies

Well I finished building my 450SE v2 this weekend and just took it out to try it. Everything seemed to be going ok as I was practicing some hovering when all of a sudden it just dropped like a rock. Luckily it was only a couple feet off the ground so no damage. I thought the battery was out so I put in a fresh one and tried it again. When I go to throttle up the blades spin slowly for about 1 second then the motor stops. This is all it will do now. Same thing every time I try it - slow spin - stop.

I noticed that my batteries were both quite cool and that the ESC heat sink was fairly warm but not hot. I have the Align 430L motor and Align 35G ESC. Can anyone help me with this?
