So far I have ordered 10+ of the 2212-6 and 2826-6 motors.

I just received a new order this past Friday. This time around, two out of 3 of the 2826-6 motors (with the swirl bell) have magnets protruding from the bottom of the bell. This is not good. Often, it is an indication that the magnets slipped before the glue dried. It can also be a sign of delamination (glue failure). These are brand new...have not been run yet. Not good. See picture below. I wonder if RCTimer would send me new ones?

We also had an in-flight failure of one of the 30A programmable ESC's. We did a pre-flight test...and the motor 2826-6, prop 6x4, and battery were only pulling ~21 amps at full throttle. It caught on fire about mid-flight. We lost a plane, the esc, the motor, the battery, the Spektrum receiver, servos, etc. Not good. You can read about that here.
