    You're not giving us much to go on. It could be a lot of things. Batteries, a jammed drive, a motor, or a bad ESC. If your batteries are good, I'd take a look at your drive first to make sure it's lubed, and running smooth. To do that, loosen up the motor coupler, so that you can spin the prop without spinning the motor. There should be no resistance there.
    Life's to short to be a sour puss.
