Scorpion 3026-1600
I have here a Scorpion 3026-1600 that’s a warranty replacement from Innovative.

Story begins on 6-30-09 when I got the motor from helidirect for $74.99 + $8.60 S&H.

I spent the day Saturday getting it installed and doing some other upgrades. Late Saturday afternoon I took it to the field to fly.

In less than 4 minutes on the very first flight it started to ‘sound odd’. So I did an emergency landing and got the ship down OK.

By the time the blades had stopped the motor was totally seized, couldn’t even turn it with the rotor head.

Pulled it apart and found the lower bearing had catastrophically failed and sent parts up into the windings totally trashing the motor.
A little reading on the forums and it seems this is a very common issue with this motor. The bottom bearing is so tiny that it just can’t take the forces.

Then began the warranty process which was unpleasant, time consuming and costly, to say the least. I have video and photographic and log evidence showing proper gear mesh, proper wiring and a eagletree log showing that it was not run out of spec.
Innovative still tried to blame me for the failure and I was instructed to send the motor to them at my expense (another six bucks) and they would ‘inspect and/or repair’ at their convenience.

17 days later a box from Innovative showed up, in it is what appears to be a new motor – the box is new and sealed, I have not opened it. I have zero interest in this motor and just want to get out what I have in it.

$74.99
$8.60
$6
=$89.59
+ any shipping/creditcard/pp fees. I can put it in my company’s webstore for direct CC use or you can use my personal pp account, your choice. Money orders, western union, etc also fine.

I'm not sure your going to sell it for more than you can buy it for new other places. likely youll have to sell for the same amount for about 5-10% less.***Logo 600 vbar***Henseleit TDR vbar***

there's your answer, it will not be sold.

I know your angry about the whole situation by my advice would be to either keep it and use it (its a good, motor many including myself use it you must have just got a dud, it happens) or sell it at a slight loss. the best you'll probably do is to sell it at the same price as online vendors and throw in free shipping.

Based on what I've read in the forums, a few hundred people have gotten 'duds' as you call it.

Frankly I'm not quite good enough at autorotations to run a motor like this.
I got it down safely once, would rather not be doing that on a regular basis.
