With the sun shining outside, I took the T-Rex out of winter hibernation for a short test flight behind the house. I had to discharge a battery anyway. Sender and receiver were ok, servos responded correctly and only the blades were a little too loose. Then came the moment to lift off.

My first guess is that the bearings are done and perhaps some of the coils have quit as well. Looks like I need a new motor, but where to get one while the local stores are closed?

I hate buying things like from Amazon as the smaller shops still need customers or the will die. I was in a Model shop on Saturday buying some Gold paint there was one guy in there looking to buy a Glock airpistol andother on the phone to buy a crossbow. I felt like I was in the Walking Dead!
