Thanks for all the info guys, it's much appreciated. As a result, I took everyone's suggestions and checked everything, recharged all my batteries and recorded each battery's volts off the charger. Stripped the heat shrink off the wire connections and resealed them, all appeared good.
Then decided to make a intake fairing for the EDF unit as the Hoaye does not come with one, hence, I made a mould a long time ago. So epoxied the finished fairing in place, sanded it and figured, what the heck, add some bling, so sprayed it gold
Since I had the motor out, I gave it a quick inspection, I notice the shaft was not protruding slightly from the back of the rear bearing and the shaft was quite stiff when I tried to spin it. So, grabbed a NIB motor from my stash and compared it. The shaft spun much easier and the shaft protruded slightly out of the rear bearing.
So, mounted the new motor. Installed the EDF in the fuselage and hooked every thing up. They system worked perfectly, on a 8 cell pack, timing set to 2, I got a reading of 2250 watts at 85 amps.
Case solved, the motor will be going back to Mega for repairs or replacement.
If you are wondering why there is no spinner, it's because the plastic spinners that come with the Hoaye fan are heavy and bulky and a pain to balance. Also, as far as performance goes, I don't see a difference with it or without it. I might make a conical spinner for the fan though, make it out of fiberglass and carbon fiber.
