They are still good motors, ok you have to oil the bearings every 15 or so flights (apparently... I never have and never had a bearing failure) but a set of better quality bearings doesn't cost the earth and they are easy to fit/replace. There are also 2 choices for 6s 450 scorpion motors, 2010kv or 1630kv.

There's always the Align 450MX 1700kv which is also a very good motor for even less money and it has Japanese bearings.
