I'm new to brushless motors. Do they need any maintenance like oiling the bearings occasionally? Thx.
Yes, a 9 wind with about 24 guage wire works great for a 1700 kv motor. It really screams, and will burn through your battery (and eventually the wires) if you don't down prop.

11 wind works well on a slow stick...
