wow,joined in 2008 and up to 7 posts.....lol....make m want to welcome you back
if you toasted the brushed motor it would give off a burnt smell,if it's shorted by some other means or if you esc isn't controlling the motor but is working the other controls you may need to replace them.
banana hobby sells the skysurfer and under part the motor is in stock for $8 thats a inexpensive step toward fixing her up,the brushed esc is also in stock for $10. thats mighty affordable for a plane that sells for $139.
before you do anything you should check your receiver and make sure the connections there thru to the esc and motor wires are in good shape. sound like a disconnect somewhere.
hope this encourages you to fix your skysurfer and have many great flights with it.
by the way....looks like the skysurfer would make a great fpv plane
