How long should this motor give great power. I have 259 flights with this motor been oiling every 10 to 12 flights, with Scorpion oil. It seems to me that this last 15 to 20 flights I'm loosing power. Tried a friends new lipo with no change. I'm using Outrage 6S 3000 mah 25C batteries and have around 42 cycles per battery.
Thanks for your input.

I did not notice any difference in performance from switching from the stock motor. I did notice cooler running packs and motor. Slap a 14 tooth pinion and ring it out.

Have you checked your bearing or the motor shaft. I would bet that they both need to be replaced. The motor shaft will have a groove worn in it at the top bearing. Take it apart and check it out. It is not that hard to change the bearings and put in a new shaft.

I usually take it apart at around 75 flights to check. I will do this tonight.
Thanks.
