Bending wires on Hacker B20 (or any other motor in general)?
To make a Hacker B20-L fit into the nose of my glider, I had to bend the wires 180deg as they exit to the front of the motor so as not to block anything else (I'm sure it was more painful for me than it was for the motor). The bending point is some distance away from the front of the can, and the bend radius isn't too tight though.
Question here is, how many times can I do this? I'm sure at some point I'll remove the motor for use somewhere else, so I'd like to make sure of this.
The wires feel supple enough, I hope that means they haven't wicked solder all the way down there.

My B20's (older ones) have single strand wire comming out of the can. They cant take as many bending episodes as multy strand wire.
I already lost one B20 because a lead broke off rite where it exits the can. The other has needed repair where it solders to the conector.
Fewer times bending is better.
