Hobby Lobby is the U.S. distributor for Model Motors (maker of Axi products). Check their Axi warranty page.

Thanks for the info, although i bought this motor used without reciept and the link you sent was for warranty returns.

Is there such a thing as "The Brussless Dr." for repairs etc.... ? If not maybe this would be a good idea for someone to think about doing something like that. for me Its a choice between the trash can or finding someone to reapir it. I know brushless motors are getting cheaper but once i get a plane system set up (esc, props etc) i like to stick with it.

Read the Hobby Lobby page more carefully. The second paragraph refers to out-of-warranty replacement.

"If your Model Motors electric motor fails for any reason after the 24 month warranty period Hobby Lobby will replace it at a cost of half of the current retail price of a new motor plus shipping."

It's not clear if this applies in your case, but it's certainly worth an e-mail to find out!
