  • First you will need a Phillips PH0 screwdriver, shrink tubing that fits the thin wire, heat gun or lighter, Female Mini JST plug, and new or harvested motor (WLToys V949 motors work well).

Where do I get a motor for my quad copter that is the Sky Viper v950HD in hopes of fixing the 2 stuck propellers?

Any place including Amazon or Ebay that sells the WLToys V949 motors. They are a perfect fit when fully seated and have metal cogs instead on plastic ones but they need to be fully seated .
