Don't over do your flight times, let it cool down between flights, use a few drops of Tri-flow in the motor, and buy extra motors cuz thats this heli's biggest down fall.

thats what i would do .. the only thing that will make a brushed last longer is flying less, crashing less and short flight times.

a little tricky, one way is to convert the brushes to carbon.


(take note of the date when the above thread was posted, this is still the same motor i am currently using)
