Hi,

I just bought used TREX SE. I has 180 flights extreme 3D from previous owner. It still flys very well.

I wonder how many flights should I change motor?

how many flights should I change ball links?

Share with me your experiences please.

Thanks

The motor should still be flyn strong but start thinking about upgrading. As for the ball links replace as needed look for any play.

If the motor is not over heating and running strong, it's probably fine.
The balls and links, if I find one that's loose on the head, swash or tail rotor, I replace them all. On servo I replace as needed. If you're using aluminium balls you mite consider switching over to stainless steel.

^ yup. replace it when the rotors stop spinning. You might go ahead and have one on standby though.

My silver ended stock motor developed a lot of play in the top bushing after about 100 flights so I yanked only because I had two spares.
