Question
Eflite 90-120 retract motor replacement.

I have a mildly used set of Eflite 90-120 sized retracts. While bench testing for install into a new model one of the retracts failed mid cycle and investigation revealed a piece of alloy swarf inside the motor had damaged the brushes and windings.

I would like to try and replace the motor which is easily removed from the housing and gearbox.
Anyone done this before? If so, were you able to source a replacement motor you could buy in a moderate quantity...say 5?

I also do like to know if it is possible to replace only the electric motor of my 25-46 retract from e-flite.

Does anyone have ever tried this?
