Over the summer I crashed my spark and 1 whole motor hub broke off. The arm and wires are still ok but the round motor assembly is gone.
I gave it in for an estimate and it's $170 with labor.
They want to replace the frame, Esc board, led cover, ring and 2 motors (don't know why 2).

I wanted to be able to use it for a trip to the mid west in a month.

While the parts are cheaper on eBay, I doubt I would be able to get them in on time and try the repair myself and succeed.

I don't want to get the mavic mini right away either.

I missed out on the $200 clearance blowouts for the Spark RC Combo that Walmart ran last month. My wife suggested we get a spare, but none were to be found in my area.

Right now Amazon lists the middle frame, motor (1) and ESC board as "frequently bought together" for $62.90. They also carry the ESC mount ring and LED lens cover. Labor charges are always a big part of any repair charge. I've seen videos on YT showing how to do a complete teardown/buildup if you're up to it.

Not sure why they want to replace two motors, but you'd need to make sure the motor you get is the proper one for the its position. Good luck.
