As for motor health, that’s a fair bit more difficult. (Or it’s not immediately clear how to measure it to me)

The two things that come to mind to look for is:
—a short in the windings
— overheated/Weak magnets

Measurement of the winding resistance is difficult to get a good value with a basic Voltmeter. Even on my smallest motors it barely registers, it’s basically a dead short for my meter.

The easiest way to tell if the motor is bad would then simply fall to performance. Does it put out the power that telemetry is saying? (i.e. Motor bogging during basic maneuvers but power is through the roof)
