    Hi,
    I was flying a ZMR250 quad yesterday. I gave it a plenty of height, like ~200ft or so then a bird came out of nowhere and crashed into the quad. The bird (a sparrow) was cut into pieces(still feeling bad about it). And I was sure that my quad will soon be in pieces too but it wasn't in pieces just a propeller was off. Later I found out that I had broken a shaft of my Emax MT2204(half was with the propeller and half still on the motor) What should I do? Other buying a whole new motor!

    Considering that you had a collision with a bird & then crashed from 200' with only the only damage being a $15 motor & a propeller, you should be laughing when you give the vendor you credit card number.

    Search around, there are many replacement shafts sold.

    Buy a new motor, atleast you got spares then. Bell housing & main block.
