Question How do I diagnose Motor or ESC failure

I ran my foamie into a tree and was slow shutting down motor
Hacker A20 - 30m combined with Hacker X 20 Pro ESC
No obvious damage but combos does not work - or beep on connecting Lipo
Is there any way i can diagnose if it is Motor or ESC ( or both ) that are damaged

Borrow another motor and ESC from one of your mates, and see which new component makes the system work.

No beep from motor when you apply power to the esc?
Check the connections between the ESC and motor, sounds like a bad connection in that area.
