Heat Sinks for 5G6-1 Motors AMAZING


I love the Walkera 5G6-1 Heli with Metal upgrade parts. It has always
flown beyond my expectations with one problem, the motors got real
hot thus limiting the amount of air time I could get.

I ordered a set of EA-017 Motor heat sinks from Miracle-Mart RC
helicopters, price = $3.90 ea. plus shipping to US = $4.48. I bent
the tab a bit for a snug fit on the motors and now I can fly till
battery runs down 7+ mins. and motors just get a little warm. WOW
what a difference.

My 5G6-1 has 300+ flights on it and still works like new. I still have
original motors and am on my 2nd set of blades. This is a truly
reliable Heli. Probably reason I got this much life out of the original
motors is because I always stopped flying when power got a bit
low and let motors cool before flying again.

So that means 300 flights /3 = 100 flights

These heli's are getting EXTREMELY hard to find. I just bought a clearance one from BP Hobbies for $50. I needed a new 4-in-1 for mine (Lousy crystal leg broke off!!!!!!!!). For an additional $10 to $15, I get a whole new heli with transmitter, etc. I think it's the plastic version, but hey, ...
