Radian umx motor

It seems like my motor is running slow and cutting out. It does have a million flights on it. Is it hard to replace. It looks like it is glued in place. Should I send it in or is this something I can do?

It's certainly user replaceable. Might take a little persuading though.

Best ask in the UMX Radian thread in Micro RTF, a few guys there have done the replacement.

Thanks . I dove into it and got it out. After cutting away as much of the silicon caulk as possible , I pushed it out backwards from the front. It just unplugs in the back. I have a new one on the way.

I was able to do that with my Sport Cub S, but the UMX radian glue was so hard I ended up damaging the foam the motor mount was set in. This made the repair much more difficult and touchy.
