Blade 130x losing power
hi fellow flyers
I've had my 130x for a month or so maybe 40 flights ive been loving it
then suddenly ive started losing that pop and raw power that i loved the motor gets very hot can holds fingers for 2seconds. i had a couple flights when the motor cut out during flight turned out to be low cell on battery checked motor temp it was ridiculously hot must have almost melted the plastic and u can smell a burning smell.
Power does seem to decrease towards the end of the flight.
any help would be great and could u guys please suggest some upgrade motors and where to buy ?

Sorry you are experiencing this problem! The brushless motor for the 130X is a pretty decent motor, so going with an aftermarket BL motor might get you a little better performance, but probably not that much for the money. Is everything rotating freely (main rotor, tail rotor, etc.), or is there anything binding and thereby loading up the motor? Hair wrapped around the motor shaft or binding gears can load the motor to the point it will heat up significantly.
I'm not certain if an unbalanced battery or one with a weak cell will cause the motor to heat up that significantly - - a battery with a low charge just will not allow the motor to spool up enough to give decent power. And it is remotely possible you just simply have a bad motor.

Easy way get a fresh new battery and see if battery is problem. sometimes you get lucky and its easy fix. Bad charger or flying battery low kills batteries quickly. Motor and esc should hold up well.
