Im not familar with all the equipment that you are using, but only 15 flights seems like a short life. Maybe you can be a little more specific with us. Like, what kind of throttle do you use during a flight, full power non stop will decrease performance over time. So if you go all out all the time maybe you should slow down every now and then. Also are you giving your motor and batteries time to cool between flights? Always wait until everything (batts, motor, ESC, servos, etc, etc..) has chilled out before your next flight. Or in the case of batteries wait to charge them as well.
Check to see if anything gets way to hot after a flight. Ive heard that batts and motor should only be warm under normal flying conditions in a plane like a zagi or speed 400 size plane. And im in no way an expert on these things so just remember that im trying to get you thinking, so post again with a little more info and see what the guys and gals here come up with. Good luck!
