@David aka Dribbe:

One reason why people don't like brushed motors is the fact they don't last long (brushless seem to last forever). The original brushed motor seem to last a bit longer than any other motors we install after. My question is: Do they get some kind of break-in in the factory? I'm suspecting it could simply be the fact that the airplanes are tested for a little bit with motor running in low power, before they are shipped to us. On the other side, when we replace a motor, we simply just install it, and fly (usually at WOT, since we already know how to fly the plane).

So if those motors see any kind of testing in the factory, this would mean that for sure, we should do a little break-in on replacement before we run them WOT. Any idea?

Bonus question: Will we be able to carry the Extra in a little box like all our other UMs??
