Greetings,

I'm tired of the noisy bearings in the stock align motor and am looking for a replacement. I had set my sights on the Scorpion motor, but understand its bearings need oiling every five, or so, flights; is there not a better option?

I'm using the Zippy 2650 packs and an ICE 100 ESC.

Any and all recommendations appreciated!

I have a Scorpion 4015 in mine. Great little motor. The Scorpion 4025 would have fit, but it was too big for my needs.

I've been running the 3226-1400kv scorpion which is even more powerful than the 1600kv. 14 degrees pitch at 3000hs, it's powerful but not silly. I'm going to swap out this week for the kde 3500 watt beast and then I'll report back, as I have been trying to see how powerful I can get with a simple stock 6s. Also running a kontronik koby 70 esc with it.
