Personally I wouldn't be inclined to try to fix any real or suspected motor problem myself and would contact DJI if I thought there might be something wrong.

Notchy is usually from the magnets and normal in certain motors. Not sure why only one would act that way. I never felt mine to see how they feel.

Thanks, I just wanted to check with people to see if they had the same problem.  I thought it would be magnet strength at first until I check all the other ones.  I just got it less then a week ago from amazon.  I may just return it and replace it.

Brushless motors are always going to feel notchy as it pulls on each magnet. However if it feels vastly different than the others I would contact DJI for repair / replacement. Could be something rubbing inside that could eat up and cause failure in flight.

You have no redundancy for motors, so I think your best bet is to send it back. Annoying as it is.

Good luck..

Ditto. One out of the four motors shouldn't be that different.  There's a good chance it will fly just fine but it's too big a risk that there me be an unexpected failure.
