Does anyone have an idea of what the wear out looks like for one of these motors? I use a Hobbymate 3650hb type, and it has a lot of flights (over 1500) and I wonder if it is going to give up soon.
Is there any lifetime for the magnets? Can I just replace the bearings and be back in business?

The magnets should only lose power if they get overheated, change the bearings and go fly.

My JGF 500TH has about as many flights and still going strong. I have no idea when it's going to die...

That JGF 500 is a good motor, don't know why more people aren't using it?

Agreed, definitely under rated, I love it! It's been clockwork since day one...
