Hello.

I ran the stock motor inside a glass of water and monitored the voltage and current by meters. The current is about 0.4 A whereas voltage is about 5 volts. The St 11.1 v 1200mah battery is very hot. Too hot. I put the battery inside a plastic bag and put it inside a glass of water also. Is it normal for the battery that hot while only 0.4 A was drawing ? Factory said that this battery has 8C !

if you already ran the motor then that means you already broke it in!\
I don't think it will help at this point. The stock motors are cheap. Maybe you should try another one and break it in correctly. That is assuming you think the motor is at fault.
It should /can fly well with the stock motor if everything is in the ballpark setup wise.

I went through 3 stock motors in 1 month. I used a TP 2100 that gave me 22 min fly times consistently. I probably got on average 14 flights from the motors. They would get so hot that if you wet your finger it would sizzle on the motors. I suppose I could have landed every 5 mins and waited 10 mins but I like to fly the bird. So for my habits brushless is the only way to go. My Himax gets warm now after 20 min flights but it wont burn you. It probably gets 1/3 as hot as a stock brushed motor. And also I didnt run my stock motors in the sink like I read your supposed to. My two cents.
