    I crashed my tinyhawk freestyle and one of the arms broke tearing the motor with it.
    the replacement motor is EMAX TH1103.
    Emax list only one motor which is unlike drones that i had before with CC, and CCW motors. is this universal motor?

    and if so.... does it matter how you solder the wires? I mean... all the three are black, so how do you know which goes where?

    I'm a newbie so this may be trivial... sorry

    all motors are universal. it depends on how you wire them so check which way you want to spin then check it with props off I usually just tape a bit of paper on the motor to check which way its spinning.

    If its spinning the wrong way just change one of the wires and it should spin the opposite way done!

    Thank you, It worked perfectly, and was able to fly again.
    now i run into a new problem... the drone is just dead. i mean... once i conect a battery it will chirp, but thats it.
    the lights wont go on, it doesnt respond to the radio, and it wont connect to beta flight...
    I dont see any visible damage, it just wont do anything. (other than initial chirp once battery is connected)
