I recently ran into an issue with my vmax hopper. It is no longer feeding at all. If i spin the sensor manually it will beep but the prop does not rotate at all. I have tried searching around google and have had no luck so far. Any resources or suggestions to fix it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Have you ever taken the motor/prop apart before?  I've heard that people can torque down too hard on the prop screw and slow it down or prevent it from spinning properly.  Try unscrewing the screw just slightly - maybe a quarter to a half turn.  If that's not the case, it's likely that you've burned out the motor and will need to replace it.  I'd give Valken a call and see what they say.
