Brand new 600e Pro kit went out to maiden it this weekend and got it in the air in normal all was good. Kicked it up to idle 1 and all good, started to fly off to the right and heli went into softcut off and then grey smoke out the top. Got the heli on the ground and managed not to bust it up. Pulled the canopy and the 600MX 510KV is smoking.

Under a minute of flight time and the motor is cooked. Everything is stock on this heli, ESC seems fine, logs indicate nothing, all connections on the motor were correct...For the 30 seconds it was in the air it flew great.

Should I even bother trying to attempt to warranty this or is Align going to tell me to go pound sand? Not real happy at the moment!!!

Are there alternative motors that will work with the 600e Pro 12s setup? Ones that will not require me changing out the stock CC 80HV Ice2 Esc?

Thanks

Sucks, but sh_t happens! Glad you got it down in one piece! I would definitely try to get a replacement. Explain the situation to them (after you calm down) and I bet they will take care of you. Good luck!

Anyone using the Scorpion HK-3536-510Kv motor? Thats a pretty big price difference between some of the others I've seen guys using on the t600...That 3536 looks to be retailing for around $159...other Scorpion motors are running $200-250. I'm just wondering what the differences are and would like some real feedback on it. Understand that the 3536 is fairly new, so there may not be much feedback out there.

Yup Van...it does happen...and usually due to self induced untimely meetings with terra firma.

Thanks guys appreciate the help!

I think the MX series has a lifetime warranty. Can anyone confirm?

I believe this is the thread your referring to concerning Align MX Motors having a lifetime warranty:

https://rc.runryder.com/t725619p1/

This is nice and all...however I'm not paying shipping & half the cost of a new 600MX motor for something that outa the box didn't last 30seconds. Ill follow the proper channels to attempt to get the motor replaced, but if I'm forced to put money out for a new motor it will be towards something other than the 600MX.

I'm still looking for information concerning the Scorpion HK-3536-510Kv motor that was mentioned above by AzHyper. Or other recommendations for motors in this heli. Would appreciate insight from those actually flying Scorpion or other motors that could offer opinions.

Thanks

Did you check to see of the motor mount screws touched any of the windings in the motor? Sometimes they are a bit too long!

The bolts were not touching anything in the motor.

I guess from the lack of responses everyone is flying the stock MX motor and nothing else in the Scorpion or Quantum lineup.

Motor is going back to Assurance RC and will be replaced.

The Stock motor works great, no need for anything else.

rogers259,
If its new and you have the bill of sale,all you have to do is fill out the RMA and send it in with the reciept..Its a awesome motor so don't give up on it..I have well over 500 flights on mine now and she still puts out power like the day it was new..Theres a thread on HF asking how many flights on the 600MX 510KV and many others have hundreds of flights..
A small hand full had them fail but so have other brands.

Update
Received a motor back as a replacement .... Too bad its the wrong motor!

A BL600MX 1220KV motor was sent back to me ...not a 510KV. An e-mail was sent back to Tim at Assurance however being a holiday weekend I don't expect to hear from anyone till Monday or Tuesday.

A bit frustrated at this point!

^^I feel your pain, every time somethings wrong it's another week and a half of shipping and waiting. My 700 was down for nearly six weeks but finally got it straight. Glad I'm not the only one. It's the nature of the hobby these days but at least they take care of us

Gravity's a bitch ant it?
