Hmm,
some questions?
how old is the motor? History?
How hot?
Did you try to power it up after the incident?
Batter ok? puffed?
Se? V2? Pro?
Proper pinion/gear mesh?
Kinda think if the motor failed there would be an issue prior causing it.

Can you tell us more?
Esc's do give off a nice smell when they fry!

are the esc and lipos getting hot as well, that could mean you have some kind of drag causing over amp draw...

450 motor trouble
it is the original motor.The lipos never got hot or bulged the motor never used to get hot then it started to get warmer each time the mesh was set correctly. I tried spooling it up with no load for a little bit as I didn't have the parts to fix it on hand.I was wondering how to tell without buying both esc and motor.It is the se v1.
