I'm afraid you need a new motor.They are not expensive luckily. I bought a pack with 8 motors w/mini jst connectors on them for about $15 US. easy enough to do with very basic skills if you are not too worried about how it looks. Mine has wires wrapped around the arms and is not pretty but now I can swap a motor in minutes:) Good luck!

IF you want to try soldering, try to find some old solder (lead & tin) with lower melting point than newer solder. Less risk of "desoldering" other connection. (New motor with no need for soldering sounds like a good idea for your problem). Wish you good flying soon! /Olle J
